Over the past century many types of electrical technologies have become ubiquitous. For example, in the middle decades of this century, small electric motors made their way into tools, office equipment, home appliances, and vehicles, very often without people being aware of their presence. Similarly, in the 1980s microprocessors made their way into the store, the office, the living room, the kitchen, the laundry room, and the car. Signal processing was increasingly the reason for this growth of microelectronics, as described in this article.
