In this paper, we study the sensing-throughput tradeoff problem for a multiple-channel cognitive radio (CR) network. In particular, using the sensing-throughput tradeoff metric, we investigate the design of the optimal spectrum sensing time and power allocation schemes so as to maximize the aggregate ergodic throughput of the cognitive radio network to guarantee the quality of service (QoS) of the primary users (PUs) without exceeding the power limit of the secondary transmitter. The optimal sensing time and power allocation strategies are developed under the average power constraint. Finally, numerical results show that, for a CR network with 3 channels, whose signal-to-noise ratio of PUs are -12dB, -15dB and -20dB, respectively, there is an optimal sensing time, and the optimal sensing time is almost insensitive to the total transmit power.
