Abstract:
This paper presents results from an indoor LOS channel measurement campaign at the 60 GHz band. The results include the Ricean K-factor and time dispersion/frequency selectivity, which dominate the data-rate and error-performance limitations of the channel. Finally, three clusters are identified and the well known Saleh-Valenzuela model is used to statistically describe the interarrival times and the power decay of clusters and multipath components in the clusters.
