It's possible to implement multiplication by a series of log, addition, and exponent operations. But, nobody's done it that way for 40 years, except maybe in a Galois field, in which case it's only been 20 years.
There's an old result from Computer Science that you can implement any program without having a branch or jump instruction, so long as you have conditional assignments. The first audio DSP's I built in the late 70's always did it this way. The goal was utilization of the multiplier, and a branch breaks the flow of the pipeline, so it was really best to have straight sequential code.
Steve Reply Start a New Thread. Founded by Keith Barr who started Alesis and just passed away a few months back. He did the chip design on the FV-1 apparently. You can implement a 1st-order IIR in two instructions. There's special hardware for doing LFOs that can be accessed sort of like coprocessors. There is a true multiplier, but you can see that it's buried inside more complex processing paths.
Looks like all it does is test conditions and skip a preset number of instructions ahead - no skipping back. Processing always starts at location 0 when a new sample is available from the codec. As noted earlier this is not a general-purpose DSP - strictly geared to a specific kind of audio processing.
Reverbs, simple delays, filtering, etc. Eric Reply Start a New Thread. It sounds like this part just won't do what I want in general. Thanks anyway Rick Reply Start a New Thread. This part is four times that size.

They even call it a Reverb IC in the data sheet. Thanks for all the responses. Let me know if you want to know more about the capabilities. On Wed, 12 Sepchavez.Saturation arithmetic is a version of arithmetic in which all operations such as addition and multiplication are limited to a fixed range between a minimum and maximum value. If the result of an operation is greater than the maximum, it is set " clamped " to the maximum; if it is below the minimum, it is clamped to the minimum.
The name comes from how the value becomes "saturated" once it reaches the extreme values; further additions to a maximum or subtractions from a minimum will not change the result. As can be seen from these examples, familiar properties like associativity and distributivity may fail in saturation arithmetic. Typically, general-purpose microprocessors do not implement integer arithmetic operations using saturation arithmetic; instead, they use the easier-to-implement modular arithmeticin which values exceeding the maximum value " wrap around " to the minimum value, like the hours on a clock passing from 12 to 1.
For binary hardware, which the vast majority of modern hardware is, the radix is 2, and the digits are bits. However, although more difficult to implement, saturation arithmetic has numerous practical advantages. Likewise, for 8-bit binary unsigned arithmetic, when the correct answer isit is less surprising to get an answer of from saturating arithmetic than to get an answer of 2 from modular arithmetic.
Saturation arithmetic also enables overflow of additions and multiplications to be detected consistently without an overflow bit or excessive computation, by simple comparison with the maximum or minimum value provided the datum is not permitted to take on these values.
Additionally, saturation arithmetic enables efficient algorithms for many problems, particularly in digital signal processing. For example, adjusting the volume level of a sound signal can result in overflow, and saturation causes significantly less distortion to the sound than wrap-around.
In the words of researchers G. Constantinides et al. When adding two numbers using two's complement representation, overflow results in a "wrap-around" phenomenon. The result can be a catastrophic loss in signal-to-noise ratio in a DSP system. Signals in DSP designs are therefore usually either scaled appropriately to avoid overflow for all but the most extreme input vectors, or produced using saturation arithmetic components.
Saturation arithmetic operations are available on many modern platforms, and in particular was one of the extensions made by the Intel MMX platform, specifically for such signal-processing applications.
This helps programmers anticipate and understand the effects of overflow better, and in the case of compilers usually pick the optimal solution. Saturation is challenging to implement efficiently in software on a machine with only modular arithmetic operations, since simple implementations require branches that create huge pipeline delays.
However, it is possible to implement saturating addition and subtraction in software without branchesusing only modular arithmetic and bitwise logical operations that are available on all modern CPUs and their predecessors, including all x86 CPUs back to the original Intel and some popular 8-bit CPUs some of which, such as the Zilog Z80are still in production.
On the other hand, on simple 8-bit and bit CPUs, a branching algorithm might actually be faster if programmed in assembly, since there are no pipelines to stall, and each instruction always takes multiple clock cycles.
On the x86, which provides overflow flags and conditional movesvery simple branch-free code is possible. Although saturation arithmetic is less popular for integer arithmetic in hardware, the IEEE floating-point standardthe most popular abstraction for dealing with approximate real numbers, uses a form of saturation in which overflow is converted into "infinity" or "negative infinity", and any other operation on this result continues to produce the same value.

Last version of SigmaStudio is seriously bugged, and the help file is completely obsolete. Is there anybody else on the forum who may have started this work too and would like to exchange information here about these DSP?
Never done something like that, but All oscillators are non band-limited for example. Take also the sawtooth oscillator : you can not play with the phase for example, except by doing incredible processing by yourself, while a simple bitmask would do the job for a wrap-up. I have hundreds of example like that. If there is enough similarity I'll be happy to send you the assembler so you have something to start with.
In a way it's pretty insane to do this much work. But it can be a lot of fun and keep you off the streets for a long time. I suspect you'll need quite a few beers along the way They are fixed point Q5. And yes, it's aboslutely insane, but after just a few weeks, I have already been able to get impressive results just by optimizing the code compared to what SigmaStudio is generating what AD calls "compiling", but it's absolutely not compiling at all, it's rather similar to linking pre-coded blocks and derive the RAM address they use.
I inherited a project where the people before me didn't like the prexisting code so they wrote their own modules. Have you tried creating your own custom "modules" to use in SigmaStudio? You might be able to hack-open some of their pre-existing libraries to figure out how to write your own.
I remember the files I had to update were just. The method you describe is very interesting and differs from mine.
Up to now, I have investigated the code generated by SigmaStudio, by adding one module at a time, checking the binary code generated and understanding what it does and then deduces the format of the binary instruction.
I took a look at SigmaStudio itself a long time ago to try to find how their DLL were working, but I remember I could not see the assembly generator. Sorry, I can't remember exactly what chip it was unfortuantely. I think it was either mid or low tier as there was also a Sigma It's been awhile but IIRC the instruction set format was pretty limited. I think every command was something like:.Figure 1. SigmaDSP is an audio-focused entry-level family offering in Analog Devices' digital signal processing product portfolio.
Unlike a conventional DSP, however, SigmaDSP's programming model is function block-based; you don't feed it generic C or any other conventional language source code.
Instead, you use the company's SigmaStudio toolset to graphically combine and customize the parameters of various library functions, which the toolset's compiler then turns into code for the SigmaDSP device Figure 2. Figure 2. Analog Devices' SigmaStudio toolset top provides a large number of audio-focused library functions middle which users customize and link together to implement a particular algorithm chain bottom. SigmaDSP, the first generation of which dates from a decade ago, actually comes out of Analog Device's converter group, explaining the "Sigma" referencing sigma delta conversion in the name.
Thanks to Moore's Law-driven integration capabilities, the company saw the opportunity to provide those customers with a single-chip solution. Successive SigmaDSP generations, leveraging both lithography progressions and application-tuned feature set optimizations, have delivered performance and power consumption improvements along with increasing amounts of on-chip memory and varying degrees and types of functional integration. For example, the third-generation SigmaDSP products that began shipping in supported branching, looping and subroutines, versus the linear incremental program counter found in first- and second-generation offerings.
The resulting potential program memory savings is counterbalanced by non-deterministic code execution characteristics, with varying processing load depending on branching, but the compiler prevents the peak load from exceeding a pre-defined limit to ensure there's no risk of dropped audio samples as might be the case with a conventional interrupt-driven architecture.
Figure 3. The ADAU's substantial process lithography upgrade versus third-generation SigmaDSP precursors enables higher levels of on-chip integration, along with much smaller packaging.

Other fourth-generation SigmaDSP family members, to arrive shortly, will be differentiated by the amounts of on-chip program and data RAM, along with other features. The ADAU is fabricated using a 65 nm process, which may not sound too impressive at first glance, considering that leading edge SoCs are now being built on 22 nm fabrication foundations. Consider, however, many SigmaDSP products' analog circuit-rich nature, which generally requires a more conservative process node.
Consider also that prior-generation SigmaDSP products were built using a nm process, and you might conclude that the fourth-generation fabrication upgrade would translate into faster clock speeds, lower power consumption, and increased on-chip circuitry.
You'd be right on all counts Figure 4. Figure 4. Each SigmaDSP generation has come in application-tailored feature set variants topand the company's fourth-generation family with the ADAU as its premier member will extend this trend, along with delivering a notable performance up-tick bottom.
First and foremost, the ADAU runs at a Equally, if not more importantly, Analog Devices has migrated from a single-MAC multiply-accumulate unit approach to a quad multiplier feeding a dual ALU arithmetic logic unit. The result, according to Gildersleeve, is an average 2.
Similarly, the maximum "real life" power consumption is halved, from mW to mW the latter at 1. Additional on-chip audio conversion resources include eight asynchronous SRCs, each with a conversion ratio range from to 7.
This flexibility means that not only can the ADAU optionally boot from an external serial memory, it can also subsequently initiate boot of and otherwise access external SPI-interface peripherals. The ADAU's combination of increased performance and increased integration, according to Gildersleeve, is fueled by automotive audio customers' increased number of per-vehicle audio sources e. Many of these customers, Gildersleeve noted, would otherwise have been forced to design systems containing multiple prior-generation SigmaDSP devices, or to migrate to a more expensive and power-hungry general-purpose DSP approach.
Assuming a bit incoming sample size, prior generation SigmaDSP devices' "5.
