On the way to mobile software defined radio terminals (SDR terminals), a change of the design philosophy for appropriate microelectronic hardware is necessary. The desired reconfigurability must be provided under the constraints of a low power consumption, a low bill of materials, and a small size. This contribution discusses a alternative design philosophy for the hardware development, which will help to pave the way for mobile software defined radio terminals.
