digital signal processing (DSP)

Digital Signal Processing (DSP) is the digital signal processing in real time, from the conversion of the signals in A/D converters

, through the digital processing to the output. DSP processing can be used equally for signal transmission, storage or signal modification. These requirements have given rise to high-performance processors, digital signal processors (DSP), for computer-intensive applications such as sound and image processing

or medical technology. Compared to microprocessors, digital signal processors are more specialized and definitely more powerful in narrower areas of application. They can handle fewer functions than general-purpose processors, but they can handle them much better than other processors. In particular, very computationally intensive analog-to-digital applications such as filtering, correlation or FFT analysis can be solved much faster by DSPs.
