Where do I find info on X-MIDAS? - dbell - 2007-12-20 07:17:00

Hi,

I am looking for a good description, book, or training source (only
found an $8000 course so far) on X-MIDAS.

I am finding amazingly little that contains much more than the word
(usually a job posting) on Yahoo, Google, and Ask.

Can anyone point me to a good resource?

Thanks,

Dirk

Hi Dirk,

If you're asking about X-Midas, I suspect that you work in the defense
industry. X-Midas is touted as a portable, software DSP toolkit,
though in practice its applications are developed using ICE Pic and
Texas Memory Systems hardware and, I've been told, requires a
substantial cost to port to other hardware platforms. You can find
some X-Midas documentation at http://ice-online.com/.

Be wary. As with many government-sponsored products, X-Midas may not
be the most efficient solution for your needs.

Thanks for the info.

X-Midas is not hard to learn on-the-fly.  I use it every other 
day whether I need to or not ;-)

Send an email, preferably a *signed* email, to my hotmail 
address (it's good).  We can then try to set up alternate comm 
channels, and if you have the appropriate network connections 
and/or phone equipment, I will be able to discuss X-Midas 
programming with you in some detail.  (No, I am *not* looking 
for a job ;-)

Note: X-Midas is GOTS software.  There are several 
distributions and variations "in the wild."  Some are 
unclassified.  I think that even the unclassified distros 
require you to have a DoD sponsor and sign agreements that you 
will not re-distribute the software to unauthorized people.

John,

Your post tells me everything else I wanted to know.

Thanks,

Dirk
