Abstract

A mixed-domain device characterisation algorithm with is proposed and evaluated. Wideband signals from a time-domain wavelet generator are applied to millimetre-wave antennas. Deliberately chosen gating techniques in time- A nd frequency-domain are used to relax the calibration effort to one reference measurement. A frequency-domain gate shapes the excitation pulse. Selective removal of setup artefacts and channel reflections is achieved by a time-domain gate. This method is applied to antenna links that demonstrate various gain, dispersion, and bandwidth combinations. The mixed-domain gating results on time-domain wavelets correspond well to those from frequency-domain vector network analysis. This promises simplified future... (More)
