This paper describes an exhaustive search for minimum Peak Sidelobe Level (PSL) binary codes, combining several devices for efficiency. These include combinatoric tree search techniques, the use of PSL-preserving symmetries to reduce search space, data representations and operations for fast sidelobe computation, and a partitioning scheme for parallelism. All balanced 64-bit minimum PSL codes are presented, and the upper limit on known consecutive lengths to have PSL=4 codes is extended to 70.
