A specialized digital microprocessor that performs calculations on digitized signals that were originally analog, and then forwards the results. The big advantage of DSPs lies in their programmability. DSPs can be used to compress voice signals to as little as 4,800 bps. DSPs are an integral part of all voice processing systems and fax machines.
