Where do I find info on X-MIDAS?

Started by dbell December 20, 2007
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. Darol Klawetter

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.

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
