parts to implement a Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum transmitter.
Ideally a single-chip solution would be nice. Not sure about frequency
or chip rates etc yet. Just looking for some parts to start with.

Try looking at Cypress Semiconductor.
They have a line of 2.4 GHz ICs for FHSS and DSSS.
2.4 GHz CyFi™ Transceiver
2.4 GHz Direct
Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) Radio Transceiver
the unlicensed worldwide Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM)
band (2.400 GHz to 2.483 GHz)
21 mA Operating Current (Transmit
at -5 dBm)
Transmit Power Up to 4 dBm
up to -97 dBm
Sleep Current less than 1 µA
DSSS Data Rates
up to 250 kbps, GFSK Data Rate of 1 Mbps
Low External Component
Auto Transaction Sequencer (ATS) - no MCU intervention
For more, see pdf
IC is designed to implement wireless device links operating in the
worldwide 2.4 GHz ISM frequency band. It is intended for systems
compliant with worldwide regulations covered by ETSI EN 301 489-1
V1.41, ETSI EN 300 328-1 V1.3.1 (Europe), FCC CFR 47 Part 15 (USA
and Industry Canada), and TELEC ARIB_T66_March, 2003 (Japan).
The CYRF7936 contains a 2.4 GHz CyFi radio modem which features
a 1 Mbps GFSK radio front-end, packet data buffering, packet framer,
DSSS baseband controller, and Received Signal Strength Indication
(RSSI). CYRF7936 features a SPI interface for data transfer and
