hot and happening DSP application area's?

  1. Default hot and happening DSP application area's?

    Hi,

    Which are the most hot and happening DSP application
    areas? Which area's should todays DSP designers
    concentrate so that he makes lots of money and is
    satisfied/happy too. any visionaries around here?

    What is the future of digital communication and wireless?
    Is it saturated? or there are lot of things to do.

    How about image/video processing? Is there some steam left?

    ROFL!!

    I would say professional sports, reality TV, and brokering military
    contracts.

    > and is satisfied/happy too.


    You want money AND happiness? Money can't buy happiness. (But I'd
    rather be rich and unhappy than poor and unhappy.)

    I thought that I'd find money and happiness by going into business for
    myself. I found neither. Call me naive.

    Money can't buy happiness seems to be tagline for some
    credit card company:

    Money can't buy happiness, for everything else there is
    MasterCard.

    I think we need to carefully look into the definition of business.
    what exactly is "business" how is your "own business" different
    then doing business for others (salaried employee).

    Do salaried employees add to lot of deficiencies in the system?
    Then too how do big companies survive.

    Working as a salaried employee to the company brings money but
    no sense of satisfaction and happiness. Working for yourself
    brings in lot of satisfaction and happiness but money is not
    gauranteed. Maybe in the long run it will come eventually. Till
    then hang on.

    Even I am new to the business world. Trying to understand this
    dilemma. Just now finished reading the book "good to great"
    by jim collins.

    If you can come up with the algorithm which will be able to sort out the
    immensely stupid questions from the newsgroups, that could be the one.

    Yes there is a lot of things to do, so stop talking nonsense and return
    to your arthritic designs.

    As a serial entrepreneur (founded 4 corporations, 3 still operating), I can
    certainly relate to some of Bharat's statements. The main question that all
    businesses have to be able to answer is "How do I had value?". If you can't
    answer this question, you don't have a business. To many people go into
    business without think this part thru.

    Good to Great is an excellent book. One of the most important lessons is
    the flywheel. It takes a lot of energy to make a flywheel spin, but it also
    tends to keep spinning once you get it going. Having patience (and
    sufficient resources) is often a difficult lesson to endure. It's easy to
    second guess whether an approach or product is viable (and it may not be)
    before it reaches its potential. I also like the "get the right people on
    your bus (and remove the wrong ones)"

    Good luck

    Bharat,

    It is not "hot and happening", but if I was younger, I would
    definitely add FPGAs to what I do. At this point in my career (25+
    years of DSP) no one is going to pay me a comparable salary to begin
    to design FPGAs, so I won't start that undertaking. However, I have
    found that I can be of help to FPGA designers with the definition of
    the numerical processing in ways that they do not have the DSP
    experience to do, and helping them test the numerical processing.

    Now, if you'd been doing DSP for over 30 years you'd have started by
    building DSP hardware from the gate level up. Then, implementing DSP in
    FPGAs would feel like a piece of cake. :-)

    Not bad!

    Sorry, you caught me at a low moment. Right now the business climate
    in the US (I cannot speak about any other region) is pretty bleak,
    except perhaps for military work. DSP for the military seems to most
    often mean communications, particularly secure communications, as well
    as things like target acquisition and tracking, signal detection,
    etc. So if you find that kind of work to be satisfying, then that
    seems to be the answer to your original question.

    Thanks to Al, Greg and Dirk for responding
    positively to the post.

    Al, I think I have lot more to learn from
    you. I have lot's of questions spiralling
    in my mind. But maybe I will ask some other
    time. Can I get your email id, please?

    Thanks and Regards

    This is a bit of a loaded question, but there are answers that sort of fit
    your request. As others have noted, military/defense contracting is
    probably the "hottest" area to go into right now. Generally, the work is
    very challenging though not necessarily the best in terms of pay (which is
    typically high for DSP engineers in general). Whether or not it makes you
    "happy" is up to you, however, no matter which field you go into. I do
    both defense and commercial, comm, radar and whatever other DSP-like
    applications need to be done (though no particular experience with audio).
    I just like developing algorithms, though if I had to pick I'd say comm
    makes me the "happiest."

    > What is the future of digital communication and wireless?
    > Is it saturated? or there are lot of things to do.

    Every new generation of communication technology brings statements from
    "experts" that the field has reached its limit. Viterbi decoders brought
    us near the Shannon limit when DS-CDMA systems came out, and we were all
    told "it's over, there's no need to go any further." Now we have the 4G
    systems coming out with long-term evolution (LTE) that will be using
    SC-FDMA and OFDMA (not too different than 802.11a) and cramming much more
    into the same spectrum. There's a lot to do, most definitely.

    > How about image/video processing? Is there some steam left?

    Not my area, so I cannot comment. As with any other technology, I'm sure
    there will always be steam to be found in some corner of the application.
