Digital Signal Processor

A computer chip designed to process analog data after converting them to digital form, used often in data communications and the processing of digital audio and digital video. A DSP, a type of coprocessor, is optimized to perform extensive mathematical calculations, and are programmed using their own specialized operating system. Consequently, the addition of new functions requires only a software upgrade, not a hardware one. See also Native Signal Processing.
