The AdEPar (Advanced Educational Parallel) integrated simulation and implementation environment for Digital Signal Processing (DSP) has been designed and implemented to serve as a test-bed for various scheduling, simulation, and code generation problems as well as a real-time implementation tool for DSP algorithms that could be mapped onto the proposed parallel pipelined architecture. The integrated environment fully exploits all types of concurrency present in DSP algorithms and addresses practical issues such as processor and memory constraints, architecture features of DSP processors in the target architectures, debugging of parallel programs, and development of high-level programming environments. The AdEPar software DSP environment is based on object-oriented programming techniques. Because DSP computation objects and graphics objects of AdEPar are separated from each other carefully, the software system portability is guaranteed. This programming approach saves time and effort to develop an environment based on a graphical user interface.
