Using the Intel® Architecture in High-Performance Military Embedded Signal Processing Applications -
A white paper by Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing
Historically, processors from the PowerPC® family, now known as Power Architecture® processors, have been the dominant choice for implementing Digital Signal Processing (DSP) in high-performance embedded military applications that take advantage of open-system Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) products. Today, however, beginning with Intel® Core™ i7 dual-core processors, the low-power, high-performance advantages of the Intel architecture processor technology can be used for the first time to design DSP engines for the rugged deployed COTS signal processing space.
