Embracing Complexity: MIMO Over-the-Air Testing with the Reverberation Chamber

Authors: Derek Skousen, Charlie Orlenius
Publication: Microwave Journal, August 6, 2010
Copyright Owner: Microwave Journal

This article describes a repeatable reference environment for over-the-air (OTA) testing of multiple input multiple output (MIMO) devices and why the reverberation chamber is uniquely suited to provide insight into MIMO device performance. The importance of reference environments and the characteristics of the reverberation chamber in the context of 4G wireless systems are reviewed. Statistically based measurements are described and compared with the line-of-sight solutions implemented in an anechoic chamber environment.
