Abstract

This report introduces a novel architecture for a General Purpose Digital Signal Processing System and applies the system to implement a digital hearing aid. The theory and implementation of the general purpose digital signal processing system revolve around the architecture of the digital signal processor (DSP) and its use. The system consists of three subsystems: the Analog Interface Board, the DAAD Board, and the DSP Board. The general purpose digital signal processing system described takes into consideration both the basic needs of such a system as well as the many features which make it efficient in a wide range of applications. The system was used as a testbed for implementing various real-time DSP Algorithms. One of these algorithms is concerned with the problem of hearing loss. The final implementation of the digital hearing aid examines both the feasibility of the DHA as well as the usefulness of the general purpose digital signal processing system in a random application. Suggestions for future modification and expansion are discussed.
