?Dsp Algorithms?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release SMSIS-DSP library of signal-processing algorithms from ARM, which we summarised at the time by saying "ARM has released Version 2.0 of the ARM Cortex Microcontroller Software Interface Standard (CMSIS), a vendor-independent hardware abstraction layer containing extensions for the Cortex-M4 processor.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Ambient-light sensor suited for tablet PCs from Maxim Integrated Products: "The MAX9635 is ideally suited for tablet and notebook PCs, smartphones, TVs, digital lighting-management systems and light-intensity-monitoring applications. ".

In December 2010, we covered the news from NXP Semiconductors - take a look at Microcontrollers designed for multi-applications which says: "NXP Semiconductors has launched the SmartMX2, a range of secure microcontrollers designed for applications such as e-government, banking, pay TV, mobile transactions and public transport. ".

Take a look also at the news release from MSC Vertriebs, Motor control demonstration kit for drive systems , as well as C-to-FPGA compiler supports Pico M-series modules from Impulse Accelerated Technologies, and Wireless base station SoC with multi-core DSP from Texas Instruments.
