has anyone seen or heard of compilers for microcoded processors such
AMD 2900/29000 bit slice family
Intel graphics chip
TI graphics chip
Motorola DSP chip set

writing microcode by hand is not pleasant, but i've seen few cross
compilers that target any of the above devices. a former employer
of mine used to sell a compiler for the AMD 2900 as installed in the
Adage 3000 graphics device; i know preston gurd (waterloo, canada)
sells a similar compiler on a free-lance basis.

any other comments, pointers and suggestions would be very much
