Characterizing the energy cost of different physical (PHY) layer building blocks is becoming increasingly important in modern cellular-based communications, considering the cross sector requirements for performance enhancements and energy savings. This paper presents energy profiling metrics of different PHY-layer FPGA implementations encountered in modern wireless communication systems. The results give an insight of the distribution of the consumed energy in different baseband building blocks or configurations before and after applying power optimizations in the FPGA design and implementation.
