In this paper a statistical analysis of the impact of phase- and amplitude-distortions on the performance of active antenna arrays for mobile communication base stations is presented. The cause and influence of different contributors to these distortions is described and the allowable phase- and amplitude-margins that need to be reached for mobile communication base station applications are derived. Finally a test setup of a distributed active antenna is implemented and it is shown, that the required accuracy can be achieved with standard RF-circuit design and components.
