    difference between dsp and microprocessor

    Nothing much except that the DSPs are microprocessors (or microcontroller) with special hardware support to do complex arithmetic operations. This helps them to crunch lot of data in very short time compared to normal micros.

    microprocessor vs dsp

    DSP fast operation, parell operations, Million of Instruction per se3cond, Costly, Used for RF algorithm implementation because of it fasteness...............

    Processor , slow cheap, serial processing,does not disepate much heat....as DSP. Layer Protocols and other user required programs are implemented

    difference between microprocessor and dsp

    Hello,

    both DSP and microproceesors anre processors on a single chip. but there are a lot of differences between them. DSPs are optimized for DSP algorithms. For eg all the DSP algorothms require some sort of repeated addition and multiplication. so in a DSP processor there is a dedicated multiply accumulutate unit called MAC unit which can do mulitply operations quickly when compared to an ordinary microprocessor.

    this pdf might help you.
