In this blog post, we want to explore and talk about a certain buzz word that gets inserted and interpreted in many ways in our industry. When i talk about buzz words, I'm referring to my interpretation of key words that might or might not be used universally in a software projects development lifespan.

Let’s take a look at the parts and pieces necessary to complete a DSP project. In almost all instances, you will have a DSP program as well as a control system to, in essence, replicate the logic for consumption of various types of graphical devices. The level of which DSP blocks are “unveiled” to the client obviously depends on the scope at hand and the scope that is created with the end users staff. The dilemma of “who will program the DSP” comes into play when you look at the skill sets of the different companies involved. IN 100% of our projects, the control systems programmer does not sell the gear for control, or Audio for that matter. We are not generally “best...
