3/17/2004 - According to a recent report by Venture Development Corporation: "Digital Signal Processing (DSP): Global Market Demand Analysis", unit volume shipments of merchant Digital Signal Processing boards are projected to increase at a 1.9% compound annual growth rate (CAGR).
However, when segmenting use by type of processor, VDCs research reveals:
Embedded Hardware Practice Director, Eric Gulliksen offers insight into this trend: "FPGAs and traditional DSP processors are not competing technologies, but actually complement one another. Each has its own strong points. DSP processors are most appropriate for relatively complex tasks with limited bandwidth requirements, while FPGAs may be partitioned and programmed to perform simple, repetitive tasks in parallel when high bandwidth is required. Thus FPGAs can be used as highly efficient "front ends" for Digital Signal Processing."
