    It’s time for real-time processing

    I vividly remember the decision I reached way back in 1997. I was working on developing a loss less image compression algorithm as part of my graduate studies. I had to make a choice between a general purpose processor and a DSP from Texas Instruments . I did a detailed study and determined that a DSP was better suited for my work and made the choice...

    Thanks...

    When I graduated from JMU with a degree in Political Science I never imagined I would have a 30+ career in technology. I often think how lucky I was to land my first tech job at Dynatech Data Systems back in 1980. The foundation for the careers of most of my colleagues at TI was laid in engineering school. My foundation was laid in high school when...
