Efficient MIMO Antenna Evaluation Based on MIMO Spatial Channel Simulations
Source: University of South Florida
This paper studies the proposal of using Spatial Channel Model (SCM) for the purpose of MIMO antenna parameter evaluation. The reason of choosing SCM is firstly explained. Then field measurements are conducted for comparison with simulations. The measurements have given preliminary proof to the applicability of the simulation method. To evaluate antenna parameters, the traditional approach is based on field measurements. Antenna designers firstly create the conceptual module in electromagnetic simulation software. The module is then fabricated, measured by instruments like chamber and network analyzer.
