Support for KW21Z?

I'm considering the part MKW21Z512VHT4 for 802.15.4 6LoWPAN applications as the feature set is very impressive:

Kinetis KW21Z 2.4 GHz|ARM Cortex-M0+|32-bit MCUs|NXP

 

However the links on that page "NXP Sales Office" and "NXP Authorized Distributor" are broken

 

The KSDK (Introducing Kinetis SDK v2 ) doesn't list KW21Z as supported (and seems to be software only).

 

The competitive part I'm considering is the TI CC2538 http://www.ti.com/product/cc2538/

which has a hardware SDK: http://www.ti.com/tool/cc2538dk

and an application reference design:  http://www.ti.com/product/CC2538/datasheet/applications_implementation_and_layout#SWRS0969738

 

DigiKey lists the part, but it is not available: MKW21Z512VHT4 Freescale Semiconductor - NXP | Integrated Circuits (ICs) | DigiKey

 

Does anyone have an idea

  • When the KW21Z will be shipping?
  • Will there be application reference designs?
  • Will there be a hardware SDK?

 

Thanks!
