The OTUSB does use DSP for demodulation... so does the OT1+, but in a
more simplistic way. The algorithm is stripped down a bit to use the
HCS08's 8x8 unsigned multiply, but it does pretty well against the test
track - I got over 930 decoded.
The 32-bit system will have better dynamic range, and will have enough
horsepower that I could have it run multiple algorithms in parallel in
case one's better in certain circumstances.
