I've just recently begun playing around in robotics as a hobby, so I'm very new to just about everything. I'm building a room exploring robot out of this book:; I find it quite helpful. I have a question, though: what is the cheapest programming board I can use for a MC68HC908KX8 microcontroller? This is the chip he uses; while he does show you how to select a microcontroller on your own, I'm not sure that another chip will fit into the PCBs he's created, and because of my inexperience I don't want to have to modify them (also they're much cheaper if I don't have to go custom).
Any help at all is appreciated; thank you for your time,
