I think TI, Freescale, and ADI know their markets and their shortcomings. R&D budget limits what you can do and to start a new processor family is not cheap. There is a lot of pie left over when you take away the applications using DSP core-based custom-silicon and using application specific DTV/DVR/modem/cellphone ICs. The question is if the remaining pie is a growing market and if it is susceptible to being eaten by application specific or core based silicon. Also, ADI did add some accelerator silicon to the newest SHARC, the ADSP-214xx family. This is potentially another trend. Parts Search
