When the antenna is integrated into the body of a wireless device, as it is for cell phones and many other portable devices, performance testing is typically done under free-field conditions. In this overview presentation, we will discuss characterization of some key wireless-device parameters by use of reverberation chambers. We will discuss recent research and some of the issues related to the use of these chambers for testing devices that transmit modulated signals.


Kate A. Remley, an engineer at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), is known for her contributions to calibration and measurement of wireless communication which also earned her the title of IEEE Fellow. An electronics engineer, Remley joined NIST Boulder in 1999. Since 2003, she has been the leader of the Metrology for Wireless Systems Project, which develops ways to measure complex telecommunication signals used by industry, public-safety workers, and the government. Remley’s research and contributions to standards development improve the reliability and interactivity of wireless communications, which helps save lives in emergencies, and also helps the wireless industry develop better and more economical products. Remley’s previous honors include Department of Commerce bronze and silver medals and a NIST Diversity Award for “inspiring young engineers through personally mentoring a large and diverse pool of students.” She is also a member of the Oregon State University Academy of Distinguished Engineers.
