Radio Spectrum Occupancy Measurements Amid COVID-19 Telework and Telehealth

October 14, 2022
Dan Kuester, Xifeng Lu, Dazhen Gu, Azizollah Kord, Jake Rezac, Katie Carson, Marla L. Dowell, Elizabeth Eyeson, Ari Feldman, Keith Forsyth, Vu Le, John Marts, Mike McNulty, Kyle Neubarth, Andre Rosete, Matthew Ryan, Maija Teraslina
During the COVID-19 pandemic, NIST began a targeted campaign of measurements of averaged power and occupancy rate in the radio spectrum. The purpose was to sample real environments to offer timely insights into data infrastructure where it might be

Reference Measurements of Error Vector Magnitude

August 29, 2022
Paritosh Manurkar, Christopher Silva, Joshua Kast, Rob Horansky, Dylan Williams, Kate Remley
We demonstrate the suitability of the IEEE P1765 Reference Waveforms in ascertaining EVM and the associated uncertainties by performing traceable measurements on a calibrated equivalent-time sampling oscilloscope at 44 GHz. With this knowledge, a user can

mmWave Modulated-Signal Measurements for OTA Test

June 24, 2022
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

Multi-User MIMO Enabled Virtual Reality in IEEE 802.11ay WLAN

May 16, 2022
Jiayi Zhang, Steve Blandino, Neeraj Varshney, Jian Wang, Camillo Gentile, Nada T. Golmie
Virtual reality (VR) coupled with 360° video has been used in a variety of areas, including gaming, remote learning, and healthcare, among others. The 360° video on which VR applications are based today is mostly low resolution and, in order to improve the

A 110 GHz Comb Generator in a 250 nm InP HBT Technology

April 18, 2022
Jerome Cheron, Dylan Williams, Richard Chamberlin, Miguel Urteaga, Paul D. Hale, Rob Jones, Ari Feldman
We report a monolithic microwave integrated-circuit (MMIC) comb generator capable of producing a repetitive narrow pulse (7.1 ps pulse duration) with sharp edges (4.2 ps falling time). The circuit is designed in a 250 nm Indium Phosphide (InP)

Measurements of IP3 and P1dB for Spectrum Monitoring with Software Defined Radios

March 30, 2022
Mike McNulty, Dazhen Gu, Dan Kuester, Payam Nayeri
This paper discusses methodology for characterizing linearity summary parameters of software-defined radio receivers. First, we introduce a highly automated testbed for 1-dB compression point (P1dB) and third-order input intercept point (IIP3). With this

Analyzing 5G NR-U and WiGig Coexistence with Multiple-Beam Directional LBT

February 15, 2022
Yao Ma, Susanna Mosleh, Jason Coder
The mmWave radio frequency (RF) spectrum allocations provide a large bandwidth and an excellent dynamic spectrum sharing (DSS) opportunity for emerging 5G New-Radio unlicensed (NR-U) and Wireless Gigabit (WiGig) services. To support constructive DSS, we

Wireless Time Sensitive Networking Impact on an Industrial Collaborative Robotic Workcell

February 15, 2022
Susruth Sudhakaran, Karl Montgomery, Mohamed Hany, Dave Cavalcanti, Rick Candell
In this paper, we describe a collaborative robotic workcell testbed enabled by Wireless Time Sensitive Networking (WTSN) technologies and discuss deployment, performance measurement and management guidelines challenges. We detail the methodologies for

Deep Learning for Radar Signal Detection in the 3.5 GHz CBRS Band

January 20, 2022
Raied Caromi, Alex Lackpour, Kassem Kallas, Thao T. Nguyen
This paper presents a comprehensive framework for generating radio frequency (RF) datasets, designing deep learning (DL) detectors, and evaluating their detection performance using both simulated and experimental test data. The proposed tools and

Markov Multi-Beamtracking in SU-MIMO with 60 GHz Mobile Channel Measurements

December 28, 2021
Steve Blandino, Jelena Senic, Camillo Gentile, Derek Caudill
Beamforming training refers to the exhaustive scan over which the receiver and transmitter beams are steered along a predefined set of angles to determine the beam pairs that coincide with the dominant channel paths, for spatial multiplexing. In the

Admission Control and Scheduling of Isochronous Traffic in IEEE 802.11ad MAC

December 20, 2021
Anirudha Sahoo, Weichao Gao, Tanguy Ropitault, Nada T. Golmie
An upsurge of bandwidth hungry applications such as virtual reality, augmented reality and availability of unlicensed spectrum in the mmWave band at 60 GHz have led to standardization of the next generation WiFi such as IEEE 802.11ad and 802.11ay. Due to

On Convergence of the Upper Bound on the Ratio of Gain to Quality Factor

December 6, 2021
Alex Yuffa, Marc Valdez, Benoit Derat
An antenna's practical far-field distance can be estimated from the upper bound on the ratio of its gain to quality factor. This upper bound is an infinite series that can be truncated based on the desired far-field accuracy. We investigate the convergence

Deep Learning Based Link-Level Abstraction for mmWave Communications

November 18, 2021
Jian Wang, Neeraj Varshney, Jiayi Zhang, David W. Griffith, Nada T. Golmie
Link abstraction is an efficient way for predicting link-level performance (e.g., whether the receiver successfully receives packets through communication links). It can be used to support system-level simulation and facilitate link adaption. Nonetheless
