Who makes Canon/Nikon DSP processors

Is the Digic processor used by Canon actually designed by Canon and is the Expeed processor of Nikon designed by Nikon? Are they possibly off-the-shelf components designed and created by another company?

I am kind of curious in that, with my limited knowledge, I cannot think why the camera manufacturers would go to the effort of designing a sophisticated DSP when they already have enough issues dealing with their raison d'être which is the sensors.
