ICE Option Tree
This Midas software tree contains drivers, libraries, and primitives supporting the ICE line of DSP cards. The tree includes a test directory for building and running the libraries outside of the Midas environment. Drivers currently exist for Open VMS, Digital Unix, Linux, Windows-9X/2000/XP, Solaris, Silicon Graphics and Mac.
Note: Because the ICE software bundle contains more than just Midas-based software—including standalone capability—it is increasingly referred to as the ICE Toolkit.
