DSPs to continue fast growth

The worldwide market for digital signal processors (DSPs) and related mixed-signal/analog semiconductors is expected to grow to about $50 billion over the next 10 years at a rate faster than the total semiconductor market, says Tom Engibous, president and chief executive officer of Texas Instruments. Pacing DSP growth will be real-time embedded applications such as fingerprint scanners, networking equipment, automotive controls, and cellular phones, Engibous says. "It`s safe to say that if you l

The worldwide market for digital signal processors (DSPs) and related mixed-signal/analog semiconductors is expected to grow to about $50 billion over the next 10 years at a rate faster than the total semiconductor market, says Tom Engibous, president and chief executive officer of Texas Instruments. Pacing DSP growth will be real-time embedded applications such as fingerprint scanners, networking equipment, automotive controls, and cellular phones, Engibous says. "It`s safe to say that if you look 10 years out, many of the DSP applications that will be common then haven`t even been invented today," Engibous says. - J.K.
