Digital Signal Processor

Generally a very programmer unfriendly processor with small on-board ROM, RAM and single cycle multiply (parallel with normal instructions), designed to run dedicated single line, serial in, serial out, signal processing applications very fast.

First in shipping a C67x board to customers. The HEVAL-6B is a 1GFLOPS DSP card using a single TMS320C6701 processor. It has a flexible I/O system that will actually let you use it in real-world systems.
HERON is a modular system for DSP and I/O. You can combine TMS320C6201 and TMS320C6701 processors with I/O to build a system for RADAR, GSM testing, imaging and so forth. Because if it's modularity you can mix and match processors and I/O to get the system you want.
HERON wouldn't work without fast real-time communications between processors and I/O; so be sure to check out HEART. This offers fast real-time communications - so you can combine ANY NUMBER of HERON nodes into your system!

IBM seems to be the father of the DSP. Their DSP is called Mwave (DSP2780). It's used in their MWave PC-board which combines a sound card with a modem (which was not a good idea I think, because it needed the drivers to be loaded from the OS, which made it incompatible with most OS's and didn't have enough power to emulate a full MIDI wavetable sound card and a 28k8 modem at the same time.)
The software development kit for the DSP, which used to sell for about $500 has been made public in the mean time.
For more information I recomment:
(currently unknown) - Inofficial MWave home page.
