A digital signal processor (DSP) is a chip dedicated to the manipulation of analog signals (commonly sound or image) which have been digitized or converted to digital form (sampled).[1]

History[]

Such processors were often separate from a computer's CPU to free it up from such high-volume tasks. However, this functionality has since been integrated into vector processing units, and then graphics processing units.[2]
