The Spectrum Sensing technology is the core technology of the Cognitive Radio (CR) system that is one of the future wireless communication technologies. This is the technology that temporarily allocates the frequency bandwidth by scanning surrounding wireless environments to keep licensed terminals and search the unused frequency bandwidth. In this paper, we implement the efficient Spectrum Sensing methods based on CR technology in an embedded board. The DVB-H signal with the 6MHz bandwidth is used as the RF input signal. And we confirm the Spectrum Sensing result using Modified Periodogram Method, Welch's Method, SCF Method. And also, We examine the execution speed of each of detailed functions and the performance of Spectrum Sensing methods on TI320C6416 DSP board inserted in an embedded board.
