This post will be short and simple:
If you don’t know what the Freedom board is, go to: www.freescale.com/freedom and find out. I’ll summmarize it: a low-cost Freescale Cortex M0+ enabled development platform that’s just awesome.
If you want to check out some awesome things that can be done with the Freedom board, go and visit my buddy Erich Styger’s blog mcuoneclipse.com
If you want to start developing with this board right away and without major hassles go and visit mbed.org
mbed is a development platform on web. Yes, web, your IDE is on the web browser, there’s libraries, code samples, a version tracker on the browser. Documentation is clear and thorough, no need for licenses, you just create an account and write code.
I’ve been waiting for a chance to post about this for a while (being a Freescale engineer I knew about this some time before it was release to the public) now it’s here, and it’s awesome and you should go and check it out!
