Some key features:
- Supports all programmers and MCUs that AVRDUDE supports
- Supports presets, allowing you to change between devices and configurations quickly and easily
- Drag and drop files for easy uploading
- Automatically lists available COM ports
AVRDUDESS – A gui for AVRdude - [Link]
Nathan Zimmerman has developed this PC GUI evaluation tool for the MSP430. Coded in VC++, the GUI allows control of all the peripherals on a MSP430 controller. He’s currently testing it using the MSP430G2553. [via]
This GUI would be very handy to have from a hardware/software test debug standpoint. For example, say I wanted to test out some SPI sensor I purchased, I could use a GUI such as this to send custom SPI packets to the device I’m testing and read/observe results live. That as opposed to having to write a micro.c file to do the communication and re write it every time something doesn’t work.

TI launched a new point and click GUI that configures MSP430 peripherals. Just select your options and C configuration code is generated. This could be a huge time saver for even experienced developers. Less time digging in a datasheet? Sign us up: [via]
the Grace software platform [is] a free visual plug-in that enables developers to easily enable and configure ultra-low-power MSP430 microcontroller peripherals through a graphical user interface (GUI). With Grace software, developers can interact with buttons, pull-down menus and helpful pop-ups to generate easy-to-understand C code that automatically configures the low-level register settings of analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), operational amplifiers (op amps), timers, serial communication modules, clocks and other peripherals.
