**Do NOT use this tag for general questions about digital signal processing!** A DSP core is a processing unit specialized for digital signal processing tasks.

Use this tag only for questions related to the implementation of algorithms on a dedicated digital signal processor, or for asking about the properties of such a processing unit.

Digital Signal Processors are typically specialized processors that sport signal-processing typical such as multiple address generation units, instructions for low-overhead built-in tight loop constructs, and fused multiply-accumulates for vector operations.
