Abstract This paper discusses the fundamental principles of a cognitive-radio RF system. The key points required to achieve a true cognitive-radio device are outlined. The operation of a cognitive-radio system is mainly divided into two tasks. In the first task, a cognitive-radio device searches and identifies any part of the spectrum that is not occupied. The second task consists of achieving an optimal mode of communication by allocating the appropriate channels to be used. In this paper, the RF requirements required to operate a cognitive-radio device are detailed. Such a device can adopt one of two scenarios of a cognitive-radio system: the “interweave” or “underlay” mode of operation. For both scenarios, a cognitive cycle is followed. This cycle consists of the following four steps: (1) observe, (2) decide, (3) act, and (4) learn. A cognitive-radio engine is responsible for managing and integrating these four functions together into a single cognitive-radio device. In this tutorial, the realization of the four functions of a cognitive-radio cycle are detailed for both types of cognitive radio, and various RF front-end examples are presented and discussed.
