I'm looking to switch to the Kinetis chips from PIC32s. My plan is to make my own boards with the MKE06Z128VLD4 and program them with the FRDM-KE06Z. I would use Kinetis Design Studio.


I've looked through the data sheet and reference manual (admittedly just the table of contents) and have not found a schematic for the minimum circuit requirements to get the MKE06Z128VLD4 running (power, ground, bypass caps, SWD connections). Is there such a document available?


I've also seen mixed claims about the Freedom boards' use as SWD programmer/debuggers. Is the FRDM-KE06Z OpenSDA locked to program only specific Kinetis chips, or can it work with any Kinetis? (Probably too much to hope that it can work with any ARM.)


Thank you,
