Overview:
You've heard of the Digital Signal Controller (DSC). It's a hybrid microcontroller and DSP. It's low cost, low power, and able to handle signal conditioning, real-time control, and connectivity all at once.

The hardware choices made to create a DSC are important. For example, you need to have dedicated DSP instructions, a MAC, and Barrel Shifter. Integrating a Floating Point Unit is also a big help.

Now once you've found a device that includes all this, you still need to have the software to go along with it. Digital Signal Pro-processing (DSP) libraries offering a broad range of functionality, and optimized to run on the hardware, give the embedded developer a great starting point for addressing many DSP application challenges.

Have a sensor on your motor and need to do a little digital filtering? Looking for a low cost way to do image processing like edge extraction or face detection? Want to use signal analysis to detect a faulty bearing? Performing audio processing? Together, a DSC and DSP Library can enable an embedded developer to quickly solve all these problems and many more.

What attendees will learn:
Attendees will walk away with an understanding of how to use a Digital Signal Controller along with a DSP Library to address emerging applications that require some digital signal processing, but where a dedicated DSP chip is not the best overall solution. Specifically, the following topics will be covered.

  • What is a Digital Signal Controller
  • Common kernels included in a DSP Library including kernels for filter, transform, complex, matrix, and statistical operations
  • Benefits of a well-structured API in a DSP Library
  • Application areas which can be addressed with a Digital Signal Controller and accompanying DSP Library
Duration: 50 minutes + Q&A

Who should attend: Developers of embedded hardware or software for consumer and industrial applications
