—Wireless communication standards are developed at an ever-increasing rate of pace, and significant amounts of effort is put into research for new communication methods and concepts. On the physical layer, such topics include MIMO, cooperative communication, and error control coding, whereas research on the medium access layer includes link control, network(More)
—One of the key enablers for cheaper and faster time to market for next generation radios are software defined radios. However to reach an energy efficient but yet programmable solution for different radio standards, requires the designer to trade-off the right flexibility to programmability. In this paper we introduce IMEC's SDR platform which is capable(More)
Software Defined Radio (SDR) terminals are crucial to enable seamless and transparent inter-working between fourth generation wireless access systems or communication modes. On the longer term, SDRs will be extended to become Cognitive Radios enabling efficient spectrum usage. Future communication modes will have heavy hardware resource requirements and(More)
Novel cognitive radio platforms such as IMECs COgnitive Baseband RAdio (COBRA) should ensure the feasibility of multiple streams and their reconfigurability and scalability during run-time. The control over those tasks should be dedicated to a run-time controller that (re)allocates the resources on the platform. E.g., when user starts a new stream or the(More)
