Abstract

Millimeter wave wireless systems rely heavily on directional communication in narrow steerable beams. Tools to measure the spatial and temporal nature of the channel are necessary to evaluate beamforming and related algorithms. This paper presents a novel 60 GHz phased-array based directional channel sounder and data analysis procedure that can accurately extract paths and their transmit and receive directions. The gains along each path can also be measured for analyzing blocking scenarios. The sounder is validated in an indoor office environment.
