  • Families of $m-$sequences with low correlation property have important applications in communication systems. In this paper, for a prime $p\equiv 1\ \mathrm{mod}\ 4$ and an odd integer $k$, we study the cross correlation between a $p$-ary $m$-sequence $\{s_t\}$ of period $p^n-1$ and its decimated sequence $\{s_{dt}\}$, where $d=\frac{(p^k+1)^2}{2(p^e+1)}$, $e|k$ and $n = 2k$. Using quadratic form polynomial theory, we obtain the distribution of the cross correlation which is six-valued. Specially, our results show that the magnitude of the cross correlation is upper bounded by $2\sqrt{p^n}+1$ for $p=5$ and $e=1$, which is meaningful in CDMA communication systems.
