EnSilica adds DSP to RISC cores

EnSilica has added a 64-bit precision, fully-pipelined MAC unit to its RISC core to deliver the eSi-3260 for audio, sensor hub, motion control and touch screen applications. In addition to 32-bit data, the MAC unit supports dual 16-bit SIMD (single instruction multiple data) multiply and MAC operations. Uniquely, full complex multiplication is also supported, performing four multiplies and two additions per ...

What’s ARM doing in the DSP market?

ARM has not only revolutionised the embedded processor market in a way Intel could not have imagined 20 years ago. It is also changing the very different world of digital signal processing (DSP). Microcontrollers are not designed for real-time processing and so the DSP function has to be added. Texas Instruments first added DSP elements to its microcontrollers back in 1997.DSP added real-time signal process ...

ADI puts floating point Sharc DSP into the embedded mainstream

Analog Devices (ADI) has introduced a multi-core Sharc DSP device which it believes will remove the power limitations of using floating point DSP for highly determinisitic audio processing. As a result it aims to encourage wider use of floating point DSP in real-time processing applications which currently try to use a system CPU, typically ARM-based processors. To do this ADI has integrated two Sharc DSP c ...
