Thanks Frank -- I remember using transistor-based analog computers at collage in the late 1970s -- I wish I coudl go back and show myself things like MP3 players (and tell myself to buy stock in Apple and SanDisk and... (grin)

The first single-chip DSP processor came from Bell Labs in 1979, but building block compenents came earlier -- Fairchild had a 2x4 multiplier IC in 1970. It's difficult to discover the first usage of the phrase "digital signal processing," but it is worth noting that the first A/D and D/A converters were developed using vacuum tubes in the late 1930s.

I tell you, I wish I had learned more about digital signal processing when I was younger ... but now I come to think about it I don't even know if there was such a beast when I was at college in the late 1970s. Does anyone know when the term DSP first appeared on the scene?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
