Comparisons of Channel Emulation Methods for State-of-the-Art Multi-Probe Anechoic Chamber based Millimeter-Wave Over-the-Air Testing
Paper i proceeding, 2019

The sectored multi-probe anechoic chamber (MPAC) is regarded as a promising millimeter-wave (mmWave) over- the-air (OTA) testing solution. However, there are still debates in the literature about which channel emulation method, i.e., pre-faded synthesis (PFS) or plane wave synthesis (PWS), should be used for the sectored MPAC testing system. In this paper, a thorough comparison between the two channel emulation methods is conducted. It is found that for sectored MPAC (where the active probes are unlikely to be uniformly distributed over the probe panel) the PFS is more accurate than the PWS. Explanations are given.
