New DSP ICs for Increased Functionality and Performance

Integer Arithmetic Unit; 5-Port Register File; Floating-Point Chip Sets; 24 × 24 Multiplier; Single-Port MAC; for High-Speed, Low Power, Low Chip Count

Since Analog Devices introduced the first low-power CMOS Digital Signal Processing (DSP) integrated circuits in 1983 (see Analog Dialogue 17-1), the application of DSP have grown tremendously. Wherever there has been a need for rapid processing of data, especially from real-world phenomena, integrated circuits that perform number-crunching operations in hardware have provided an opportunity to analyze and explore information in new ways. Read full article
