For optimization numerous options are utilized to improve functionality and power consumption. The actual module implementation for a certain module type is selected (e.g., the type of an ADC) as well as the scaling of the module (e.g., the resolution of the ADC). This is supplemented by device partitioning between hardware and software, between analog and digital as well as between RF and baseband part. Further more every module can be parameterized (e.g., timing). This large quantity on variations within the design space offers great flexibility and opportunity for optimization.
