Uhh, TI? There's the MSP430 series which are very cheap and low-power but not
DSPs, and then there's the C5000's which aren't very cheap or low-power (100mW
and US$40-50, probably cheaper in quantity). An ADSP-21x would be a better
bet, but anything like that is still a suboptimal solution compared to an ASIC.
