Today, Software Defined and Cognitive Radios have become very attractive topics in the wireless communications arena. Such a system supports the coexistence of many communication standards inside a single device while still providing a highly flexible solution that is seamlessly reconfigurable and adjustable in order to adapt to a changeable environment. Par4CR is a European project that targets the development of cognitive radio. It is a cooperation program based on the knowledge exchange between seven partners from Industry and Academia. The purpose of this research activity is to analyze in details the current situation on the Software Defined Radio (SDR) from the physical layer point of view and to investigate the impact of recent and future technologies in the materials, elements and system areas in order to enable a smooth transfer from SDR to Cognitive Radio (CR). The main focus of the investigation is aimed at the evaluation of the system performance by means of behavioral model description. The methodology and main functions of this approach are described in this paper.
