Abstract—This paper will give a detailed discussion aboutthe authors view on Software Defined and Cognitive Radio.After an introduction on different aspects of software radioand a novel approach on cognitive radio is presented. Asproof of concept a software defined cognitive radiodemonstrator termed Falcon was built up which is describedafterwards. The Falcon is entirely based on a modularsignal processing concept. In particular, the receiver deploysmodules which process and generate log-likelihood ratio(LLR) signals, hence, providing the capability of a plug-andplay-type reconfigurability. To the best knowledge of theauthors, such a reconfigurability approach has not yet beenpursued as consequently before.
