    Hi all,
    I'm thinking about writing a Windows application which makes programming
    microcontrollers easier. The basic idea is that you draw block diagrams of
    what you want and the program then translates this into assembler directly.
    You don't have to write any code yourself.
    The basic modules supplied would be adders, subtractors, multipliers,
    dividers, constants, registers, memory blocks etc. which are then connected
    up by 'wires' on the screen.
    The resulting code would run about as quickly as a program compiled in C but
    is much quicker to generate. Engineers would probably like this approach as
    they'd be able to think in circuit terms rather than linguistically.
    Has anyone heard of a similar approach?
    Would you find this useful?

    Thanks in advance for any feedback.
    Best regards,
    Rob.

    you mean like flowcode

    or

    bitset from elabtronics

    or
    iar visual state

    or
    like rational rose

    never really flexible enough.
    Also can be too high level and not generate fast enough code.
