Estimation of DoA Based on Large-scale Virtual Array Data

Future 5G communication systems operating in the mmwave bands (6-100 GHz) will rely on multi-antenna techniques like beamforming and MIMO 1. Therefore, measurement and description of spatial channel information (direction of arrival DoA, direction of departure DoD) is of high relevance for mm-wave system design and channel modeling.
Application Notes:

mm-Wave Band Signal Generation and Analysis

This application note describes how to generate and analyze wideband digitally modulated signals in the mm-wave range. Measurement results such as error vector magnitude (EVM) and adjacent channel power (ACLR) are shown. Two test setups and their measurement results on a commercial V-band transceiver module are presented

Wideband Signal Analysis

5G technology for cellular networks is investigating the use of signals with bandwidths up to 2GHz. This application note presents a method to measure and analyze signals with an instantaneous bandwidth of up to 2 GHz using new tools on the FSW Signal and Spectrum Analyzer platform in collaboration with an RTO Digital Oscilloscope.
Application Notes:

Wideband mm-Wave Signal Generation and Analysis

Generation of wideband digital modulated signals in V-band and above is a challenging task and typically requires a set of multiple instruments. This application note looks into the analysis part as well. Latest signal and spectrum analyzers like the R&S®FSW67 are first to allow use in V-band up to 67 GHz without external frequency conversion.… Read more »
