I'm new to Kinetis microcontrollers, coming from an MSP430 world. With the MSP430 what I usually do is:
* create a prototype version of software using the MSP430 LaunchPad,
* design the target PCB, build the device,
* connect the launchpad SBW (spy-bi-wire) pins to the target device,
* program the target device.
I just realized that steps 3 and 4 are not obvious in the world of Kinetis. There are DIY tutorials on modifying Freedom boards, but there are warnings about licenses not allowing this kind of thing.
So, do I need to buy a dedicated device just to load code onto chips? What is the hobbyist-friendly solution for that?
