CHAPTER 20Implementation Using Digital Signal Processors

A digital signal processor is a special form of microprocessor that is optimized to perform DSP operations. The first DSP processors became available in 1982. They are designed to perform DSP functions in an efficient manner, using conventional software programming design and verification techniques. Due to the special features and parallelism added for DSP operations, conventional programming languages such as C often do not have the syntax to express the needed operations, although advanced compilers developed by the DSP processor manufacturers do try to interpret the programmer’s intent and map to the DSP processor features in the most effective manner. For this reason, a vendor-specific ...
