Effective January 1st 2022, ICE Enterprises will increase all product prices by 20%. Market forces, both rising component cost and increasing material lead time, are requiring the first price adjustment in company history. This price increase will allow ICE Enterprises to continue to design and manufacture quality electronic hardware as has been the case for over two decades. ICE Enterprises will honor all current price quotes and accept orders at existing pricing through the end of December 2021.

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.
