In a DECT system, one of the tasks of the porta- ble part (PP) while in the active unlocked or idle locked state is to build a channel list for synchro- nizing to or hand-off to the strongest radio fixed part (RFP). The PP performs this function by search- ing all the channels and slots in the DECT tiequency band for a DECT sync channel. Depending on the PP architecture, the process of searching the DECT frequency band adds to the overall power budget of the PI! This paper describes a method for reducing the power consumption of searching the DECT he- quency band.
