Here is a little background on me. I have been programming the QG8 and QE32 microcontrollers for a the last 5 years. I Currently working on a project that required a microcontroller with four serial ports (SCI). I found that i could go with either the 32-bit Kinetis K series or 8-bit S08GW. The main portion of the code is fully tested with the QE32 uC and various parts "glued" together. It looks like the S08GW has limited stock. I have about a month to bring the hardware up and running.
1. Which route should i take to achieve this goal ?
2. What is the learning curve like for transition from the QE32 uC to the Kinetis K (K1x or K2x) ?
