The design of CDMA sequence families using quadratic functions dates hack to Gold sequences from the 1960s. Since then there have been a number of different such designs with good correlation properties, some optimal and some near optimal, and the term "Gold-like" is usually used to denote such sequences. In this paper we use the concept of plateaued functions, not necessarily quadratic, in order to classify such sequence families and present some examples in this direction which depend on the characteristic p and degree n of the Galois field 4, used to define the sequences.
