An energy-efficient architecture is vital for the next generation of mobile phones. The battery operated nature of these systems requires them to be designed and operated in a highly energy-efficient manner to maximize the battery lifetime. In this paper the characteristics (in terms of power consumption and quality) of a RAKE receiver in combination with a turbo decoder are considered. Important parameters are selected and their influences on the energy consumption and quality are investigated by means of simulations.
