EDN magazine publishes every year directory on various microprocessorors. The directory provides a snapshot each year of the companies, products, intellectual property, and software-development tools available as digital-signal-processing resources for embedded-system developers. Scratching the surface: The 2010 DSP Directory lists the relevant DSP offerings this year. This directory aims to provide designers and system architects enough visibility to dig into the processor options and quickly narrow the list of candidate processors for their project. It does that pretty well. The directory for general purpose processors is published on the end of the year (check year 2009 microprocessori directory).
