We have developed a new digital signal processor (DSP) core for handheld terminals, the SPXK5 performance and flexibility, is compatible with high-level languages, and its architecture features low-power consumption. We describe the SPXK5 architecture and its performance in DSP applications. We also consider the question of application-specific enhancements. Such architecture enhancements as add-compare-select instructions or coprocessors for the Viterbi (1995) decoding algorithm are employed in some programmable DSPs, and for video codecs, other architectures include either single-instruction multiple-data (SIMD) instructions or media coprocessors. While such application-specific enhancements are valuable when their applications are actually in use, they do nothing to enhance the performance of other applications, and the more they are added, the greater the increase in chip size and energy requirements. In other words, for handheld terminals, such enhancements need to be chosen in a careful and balanced way. We have done this in developing the SPXK5, in which a wide range of signal processing algorithms are efficiently implemented
