There exists new developed FSK modems for G3RUH-FSK from
SYMEK in Germany, which do NOT use DSP but which are able
to transmit and receive FSK signals with up to 614 kBaud.
(TX+RX simultaneously). Compared to DSP, the 'hardware' modems
offer much higher speed and better $/baud ratio as DSP.
For speeds of 38k, 76k and higher, DSP is still too expensive.

I agree: For low speed, DSP is best. But speed is limited.
