DICE: The DSPCAD Integrative Command Line Environment

Maryland DSPCAD Research Group


This webpage describes the DICE Project at the University of Maryland, College Park.

1. Overview

DICE (the DSPCAD Integrative Command Line Environment) is a package of utilities that facilitates efficient management of software projects. Key areas of emphasis in DICE are cross-platform operation, support for model-based design methodologies, support for projects that integrate heterogeneous programming languages, and support for applying and integrating different kinds of design and testing methodologies. The package is being developed at the University of Maryland to facilitate the research and teaching of methods for implementation, testing, evolution, and revision of engineering software. The package is also being developed as a foundation for developing experimental research software for techniques and tools in the area of computer-aided design (CAD) of digital signal processing (DSP) systems. The package is intended for cross-platform operation, and is currently being developed and used actively on the Linux, Mac OS, Solaris, and Windows (equipped with Cygwin) platforms.

For a detailed overview of DICE and its key features, see the Introduction to DICE Version 1.1.
