mmWave Modulated-Signal Measurements for OTA Test



Joshua Kast, Paritosh Manurkar, Kate Remley, Rob Horansky, Dylan Williams


We apply a large-signal network analyzer to the measurement of arbitrarily long repetitive millimeter-wave modulated signals transmitted by user equipment generating intermodulation products in an over-the-air test environment. The measurements take advantage of the analyzer's broadband high-dynamic-range mismatch-corrected measurements and can be made on arbitrary frequency grids, speeding data acquisition of dense and sparce bandlimited signals. Every aspect of the modulated-signal measurements is made traceable.
