Abstract

With the utilization of massive multiple-input
multiple-output (MIMO) and millimeter-wave (mmWave) technologies
in 5G communications, over-the-air (OTA) testing for 5G
antenna systems has become a strong need because conducted
testing is no longer applicable. New OTA testing metrics are
required to evaluate new performance of 5G antenna systems.
This paper investigates whether the recently proposed metric,
e.g. beam probability is suitable to evaluate channel emulation
accuracy for adaptive antenna systems in multi-probe anechoic
chamber (MPAC) OTA setups. Well-known 2D spatial channel
models are selected as examples in simulation results to discuss
the relationship between device under test (DUT) size and
number of OTA antennas for beam probability metric.
