This paper introduces a multi-agent behavioral-based optimization algorithm for system level radio design. Making multi-standard wireless communication receivers that meet their specs while keeping the requirements of the individual blocks as relaxed as possible is the goal of this algorithm. In order to achieve this goal a "divide and conquer" approach is proposed. Different agents focus on different objectives that are pursued in parallel. Agents adopt different behaviors depending on the status of the environment and their interaction with other agents. Agents are cooperative by default as they try to meet their spec without making changes that affect other agents. However, more aggressive behaviors that lead to global changes can be adopted when needed. The interaction between these simple entities yields an emergent behavior able to deal smoothly with the complexity of the problem at hand.
