We introduce the design technique and test results of a millimeter-wave compact antenna test range. Physical optics is employed for the analysis of the plane wave collimated by an electrical large parabolic reflector of the compact range in the test zone. The performance of the manufactured compact range is verified with the field probing test on the quiet zone and the measurement of high gain antenna. A millimeter-wave compact range designed in the frequency range of 75~110 GHz with a diameter of the test zone of 50 cm shows the magnitude variation of less than 0.75 dB.
