Computational characteristics of DSP algorithms and applications; their influence on defining a generic instruction-set architecture for DSPs.

Architectural requirement of DSPs: high throughput, low cost, low power, small code size, embedded applications. Techniques for enhancing computational throughput: parallelism and pipelining.

Data-path of DSPs: multiple on-chip memories and buses, dedicated address generator units, specialized processing units (hardware multiplier, ALU, shifter) and on-chip peripherals for communication and control.

Control-unit of DSPs: pipelined instruction execution, specialized hardware for zero-overhead looping, interrupts.

Architecture of Texas Instruments fixed-point and floating-point DSPs: brief description of TMS320 C5x /C54x/C3x DSPs; Programmer’s model. Architecture of Analog Devices fixed-point and floating-point DSPs: brief description of ADSP 218x / 2106x DSPs; Programmer’s model.
Advanced DSPs: TI’s TMS 320C6x, ADI’s Tiger-SHARC, Lucent Technologies’ DSP 16000 VLIW processors.

Applications: a few case studies of application of DSPs in communication and multimedia.
Introduction to FPGA, RTOS, OS, Basics of Embedded systems
