The core job of DSP is to process signals. In some cases, it’s adding or subtracting from the amplitude. In other cases, it’s enhancing or suppressing parts of the frequency response, and many DSPs are excellent for reducing and/or eliminating noise from the source signal.

Up to two Tesira server-class devices (SERVER, SERVER-IO, or TesiraFORTÉ AVB) can be connected without the use of an AVB switch. Just connect the AVB ports together via Ethernet cable. Systems containing three or more server-class devices, or any expander devices (EX-MOD, EX-IN, EX-OUT, EX-AEC, EX-LOGIC), require the use of an AVB switch. The EX-LOGIC […]

Wouldn’t it be great if product development teams could collaborate in real-time with a social networking-like tool? And what if it were connected to CAD, so that any member of the team could easily call out certain components on a drawing for discussion? This idea occurred to me after learning about the SolidWorks package that […]
