Preferred toolchain for FRDM-K28F board?

Hi All,

I have a new FRDM-K28F board.  I am looking for an IDE that will allow setting of breakpoints and single step debugging (e.g. something Eclipse based) and a toolchain that will also allow CLI driven development of C code using Makefiles.

 

Can anyone suggest the best set of tools to achieve the above?  I've just downloaded MCU Expresso and wanted to try out a quick "hello world" demo, but when I click on "New Project" only the LPC based boards are listed.  I was hoping to load some ready to go samples for my FRDM board.

 

On a higher level, since the NXP takeover should I be looking at using NXP chips now instead of Freescale?  I have a new design coming up and there's nothing at this point locking me into a particular vendor.  If support on the software side is going to focus mainly on NXP chips then it'd prob. make sense to just focus on that silicon from now on?

 

Thanks,

Sean
