Nandulal said:The DSP processor is a special type of microcontroller which is designed for the simplification of complex DSP algorithms. There is special modifications done in hardware so as to make the implementation easy.
For example FFT implemetation requires multiplication and addition for each node.
if general microcontroller is used for FFT implementation then it will increase the time of calculation. But in DSP the MAC instruction does it in single clock cycle.
