Featured products


This fixed- and floating-point DSP offers a high level of integration and connectivity options at power consumption <1 mW/MHz.


This power-efficient and easy-to-use SoC offers up to 2.5 GHz of performance.


This multi-core fixed- and floating-point DSP enables up to 10 GHz of performance for high-performance signal-processing applications.

Getting to know our DSPs

Built for real-time, deterministic signal processing in the smallest performance-per-power footprint, our DSPs offer more efficient performance over other software-programmable processors, particularly for applications that include computation-intensive functions. Some of our DSP capabilities include:

  • Supporting event response times as low as 10 ns with specialized instructions
  • Consuming <200 µW/MHz and delivering >12 GFLOPs/W in your application
  • Delivering performance up to 200 GFLOPS and 400 GMACs
