This is a review of the field of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and is intended for those who do not necessarily use DSP on a daily basis.  We look at the key drivers for the field such as FFT and Digital Filters and show how the evolution of these techniques served growing numbers of important application areas such as communications and multimedia.  The rise of programmable Digital Signal Processors (also known, somewhat confusingly, as DSPâ??s) is chronicled along with the differences between fixed point and floating point implementations.  The impact of DSP on general purpose compute architectures is described, along with the growth in hardware implementations both in IC technology and FPGA.  We also look at DSP as a market and see how that view has significantly fragmented by application area in recent times.  The impact of DSP on analog design is touched upon as well as describing a number of newer application areas for DSP technology.
