I got an email from Freescale, explaining the merger with NXP. They mention that the only overlapping technology areas are Power RF components. But the MCU line is also overlapping isn't it? In fact I think Freescale and NXP are the only two companies giving 5V tolerant ARM cortex chips. Sow will the Kinetis line be axed in favour of LPC? In my opinion KDS with Processor Expert is much easier to use than LPCXpresso. Your views??
