An Introduction to DSP Processors: Advantages of DSP, characteristics of DSP systems, classes of DSP applications, DSP processor embodiment and alternatives, Fixed Vs Floating point processors, fixed point and Floating point Data Paths.

DSP Architecture: An introduction to Harvard Architecture, Differentiation between Von-Neumann and Harvard Architecture, Quantization and finite word length effects, Bus Structure, Central Processing Unit ? ALU, Accumulators, Barrel Shifters, MAC unit, compare, select, and store unit (CSSU), data addressing and program memory addressing.

Memory Architecture: Memory structures, features for reducing memory access required, wait states, external memory interfaces, memory mapping ? data memory, program memory and I/O memory, memory mapped registers.

Addressing: Various addressing modes - implied addressing, immediate data addressing, memory direct addressing, register direct and indirect addressing, and short addressing modes.

Instruction Set: Instruction types, various types registers, orthogonality, assembly language and application development.

Execution Control and Pipelining: Hardware looping, interrupts, stacks, pipelining and performance, pipelining depth, interlocking, branching effects, intefrrupt effects, instruction pipelining.

Peripherals: Serial ports, timers, parallel ports, bit I/O port, host ports, communication ports, on-chip A/D and D/A converters, external interrupts, on chip debugging facilities, power consumption and management.
