TD-SCDMA (time division synchronous code division multiple access) is a 3G mobile telephone standard developed by the Academy of Telecommunications Technology (CATT).

TD-SCDMA combines support for both circuit-switched data, such as speech or video, and packet-switched data from the Internet. The standard combines time division multiple access (TDMA) with an adaptive, synchronous-mode code division multiple access (CDMA) component.
