The problems of firmware development are briefly considered with specific references to the ANUYK-17 SPE and, in particular, the Microprogrammed Control Unit MCU. Alternatives treated are definition of a hospitable target machine, and direct generation of microcode from a higher level language. Various forms and levels of higher level languages are discussed. A motivation and source level description of a proposed language, PUMPKIN, are included. Three levels of this language are briefly described base, base augmented with run time support, extensible base. Areas for proposed future research are outlined. Author
