freeSP - platform-independent solutions
for online-signal-processing applications

Dipl.-Inf. Axel Weiss

Digital signal-processing systems gain more and more importance in practice. Developers may choose their platform from a rapidly growing and versatile hardware-market, and often they have the option to pick one of several operating systems, fitting to their needs. More annoying is the fact that advanced solutions cannot be ported without large effort. Changing hardware or operating system often requires complete re-programming. The benefit of the growing market thus is not realized.

I am now introducing freeSP as an infrastructure for platform-independent programming of signal-processing applications, which has been developed at the Humboldt-University, Institute for Computer Science, Germany. It has been successfully used in several research projects and might be of interest in the world of embedded systems.
