We introduce the radio reconfigurability thanks to IRUWB mostly digital architecture for MANET context. This particular context implies some constraints on the radio interface such as low cost, low power, small dimensions and simplicity. Here, we propose an implementation of dynamic reconfigurable receiver on ASIC, and FPGA, after having explained the advantages of mostly digital radio for reconfigurability. In this paper, by studying our prototypes, we could prove that reconfigurability is on the contrary with MANET constraints needs. The proposed solution allows data rate, radio range, energy and spectrum occupation reconfigurability.
