What is DSP?

Here’s all you need to know about digital signal processors.


DSP, which stands for digital signal processor, is a microprocessor targeted at digital signal processing (DSP) workloads.

It essentially takes on real-world signals, like noise, and mathematically manipulates them.

Digital signal processing itself, is about the numerical manipulation of signals. This manipulation is done in order to measure, filter, produce or compress continuous analogue signals.

Usually, the digital signal processing system’s work starts with the analogue signal, then this goes to an analogue-to- digital conversion unit (ADC), which then makes the DSP.
