Cognitive Radio Management Benefiting from Flexible Reconfiguration

Xiguang Wu, Jacques Palicot, Pierre Leray

Abstract

Cognitive Radio (CR) has the ability to adapt its behavior to the changing environment. In order to achieve this goal in real practice, a CR equipment should be able to manage and reconfigure itself flexibly and efficiently. Therefore, it is necessary to integrate management in the CR equipment. Benefiting from the dynamic full and partial reconfiguration, Zynq based devices provide more flexible features and become a preferable hardware platform for CR. In this paper, we briefly introduce the cognitive radio management on a Zynq based platform, and study the benefit and cost of offloading computations from software to hardware. The results show that it is possible to win both performance and power consumption by flexible reconfiguration.
