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?
