Title: Modem using a digital signal processor and a signal based command set

Abstract: Modems are implemented using a language made of instructions or commands which are based on the types of signals needed to be generated or processed by the modem. That is, the commands are individually tailored to specify the signals to be sent or processed. The modems can be implemented on a digital signal processor or on a host. The language permits a terseness of expression resulting in smaller code, makes it easy to express the needed manipulations required for modem functionality and permits faster execution.
