would agree that co-processors (lookups, security etc) can be thought of as DSPs.
My experience suggests that it takes more cycles
to receive and transmit a packet than processing it. So NPU is actually providing much more
than simply packet processing.
Totally agreed. DSP is for computing data and NPU is for moving packets. I think we can not get around this problem, i.e., there is a little computation for NPU than DSP.
