Chapter 27

Implementation Using Digital Signal Processors


The chapter speaks about the definition of digital signal processor. It is a special form of microprocessor that is optimized to perform digital signal processing (DSP) operations. Often called “DSPs” due to the function they perform, they are designed to perform DSP functions in an efficient method, using conventional software programming design and verification techniques discussed in the chapter. Owing to the special features and parallelism added for DSP operations, conventional programming languages such as C do not always produce the most optimal results, and rely on pre-optimized library calls for common algorithms and functions. Although advanced compilers developed by ...
