Abstract

Using 60-GHz band, multi-GHz bandwidth can be achieved for wireless personal area network (WPAN). However, WPAN requires high gain wide coverage area phased array antenna (PAA) for practical uses. In measurement of PAA, 3-D radiation pattern measurement is preferred. However, 2-D measurement is usually used because of limitations of measurement system. In this work, we propose a measurement method that can reduce measurement time for PAA while providing all radiation patterns; and a fixture to measure the 3-D radiation pattern which is compact and provides low interference on antenna's radiation pattern.
