First Paragraph

Multi-core Digital Signal Processors (DSPs) have gained significant importance in recent years due to the emergence of data-intensive applications, such as video and high-speed Internet browsing on mobile devices, which demand increased computational performance but lower cost and power consumption. Multi-core platforms allow manufacturers to produce smaller boards while simplifying board layout and routing, lowering power consumption and cost, and maintaining programmability.
