On the Envelope Correlation Coefficient of an LTE Reference Antenna System for Band 13

Bernhard Auinger, Michael Gadringer, Adam Tankielun, Christoph Gagern, and Wolfgang Bösch
Abstract—This document presents the investigations on two coupled reference antennas for LTE Band 13 (uplink 777MHz to 787MHz, downlink 746MHz to 756MHz). An important figure of merit to quantify coupling effects in multiple input multiple output (MIMO) antenna systems is the envelope correlation coefficient (ECC). The single antenna element is presented with radiation pattern and scattering parameters. It is a planar device, easy to be etched or milled as dimensions are given. The ECC investigations were done by measurement and simulation, the results are presented and compared. A good agreement between the simulated and the measured ECC can be recognized.

Index Terms—Band 13, ECC, envelope correlation coefficient, LTE reference antenna, MIMO antennas.

The authors are with the Graz University of Technology, Austria (e-mail: Bernhard.auinger@tugraz.at).
