Abstract

In the 5G, millimeter-wave frequency region, over-the-air testing is integral to verifying communications systems. Calibration of these vector systems will benefit from a traceable modulated-signal in the free-field for verification. We present the steps to providing this calibration signal by summarizing our work to create a traceable vector source, extending the traceability path through antenna characterization, and tracking correlations in uncertainties. We will present our study of the dominant uncertainties in the source with the goal of streamlining the calibration process.
