I'm new in embedded programming. Trying to choose a dsp, they seem very feature rich for my planned usage.
I want to analyze 18 signals (simultaneously or near simultaneously) real time. I want to do FFT analysis to determine every signal's fundamental frequency, phase and amplitude. Send that data for processing to another micro controller to trigger other stuff etc.
So the core functionality i need is, enough i/o and adc's, just enough precision to deal with this task and FFT analysis.
Or all this can be done with a micro controller which is not dedicated to signal processing?
Maybe you can point me to the right direction?
