Line 1: Line 1:
 +1. An acronym for Digital Signal Processor. A specific microprocessor which can be programmed to perform the mathematical algorithms involved in the digital signal processing of information. These real-time processors make up the fastest moving and developing segment of the semiconductor market and are particularly well suited to handle the demands of "right now" processing of information,​ such as the engine in 70 percent of the world'​s digital cellular phones and virtually all digital pagers and PDAs, improving automobile braking performance,​ or enabling faster network connections. DSPs are unique microprocessors that are programmable and operate in real time, obviously much faster than any general purpose microprocessors.
 +2. An acronym for Digital Signal Processing. The process of manipulating analog information that has been converted into a digital signal. This is useful for data compression specific applications.
