Saturday, June 13, 2009 - a initiative to bridge the gap between open "Linux" community and DSP programming.

I have no good knowledge of DSP, except using it. For last 5 years I have been associated with DSP as a blackbox, going a step deep into it was never easy. I think this is same feeling a Linux developer will have with DSPs.

On the other hand, when I look at the DSP users, they are pretty much comfortable with there world of DSP algorithms, executing them on simulators and costly platforms/products. They feel getting into any high level operating system like Linux and running a simple algorithm is never an easy task and leads to unncessary complications and delay in execution.

Though we are moving towards highend, low power processors like ARM Cortex A8 / A9, the requirement for DSP is not getting deteriorated. The reason is simple, we need more realtime data processing technology. The DSP applications are not limited to Multimedia but get more deeper in lot of non-multimedia applications like medical, security, image processing, speech, industrial data processing, video analytics, etc. "Not getting the DSP terms for these".

There are lot of applications or domains where DSP is being used and Linux is entering every DSP domain as a generic operating system to handle user experience side of it and Linux is not limited to multimedia application space. The DSP usage requirement in Linux is getting bigger and there is a role to be played by every DSP programmer and Linux developer in colloboaratively defining standard protocols to meet the exponentially growing demad of Linux and DSP in there respective worlds. will try to address these gaps by bringing both worlds together in a much open and efficient, effective way.
