Right-Sizing Embedded Digital Signal Processing

How to balance performance, memory, and power to fully utilize digital signal processing capabilities

Maximizing embedded digital signal processing (DSP) capabilities requires balancing processor performance with memory and I/O bandwidth and having the right features for secure, reliable defense processing systems. Design imbalances in any of these attributes will limit the achievable performance of the DSP engine due to throttling or processor data starvation resulting from thermal issues, missing features, or connectivity bottlenecks.

This white paper explores the critical considerations involved in architecting a high-performance sensor VPX processing system and how the right choice of DSP engine enables maximum efficiency within a specified size, weight, and power (SWaP) envelope.
