I am considering Freescale i.MX processor for my project, and I happenily know the Freescale also supports Linux. I would like to know what kind of IDE is typically used by developers of Freescale Linux, CodeWarrior or Eclipse? Does Freescale provide something similar to WindRiver Workbench? Which Dev tools are typically used by developers of Freescale Linux to debug the kernel as well t...

I was wondering why there are so few threads about the Freescale MCUs. They don't seem to be very popular, or am I wrong? I'm about to embark on a small embedded project, based on a Freescale HC08GB60 (a timer with a couple of bells and whistles) and because threads quite often deal with issues about PICs, 8051s and other small 8-bitters, a little doubt has crept up whether Freescale is ...

Hi group, we are in the process of switching over to a Freescale MPC56xx in one of our products. Question is, which compiler is recommended by those in the know of this platform? From a preference point of view, I would like to get away from the Freescale Codewarrior suite, mostly because I didn't like it in the 16-Bit world. If it is more professional (not so centered on casual programmer...

Hia, first time poster, long time fan of this site and its multiple links to all things useful :) Anyway, Ive been handed a project around the MPC5604P processor from Freescale, with no documentation on it to speak of (in-fact it took me about a week to derive the Freescale part number from its ST roots). I ended up getting the reference manual and data sheet, as well as a debugger and wha...

I was recently at a seminar for ARM MCUs and Freescale was talking about their new Kinetis devices (now I can even spell Kinetis). They talked about their "tower" eval boards using a USB connector for debug. Funny how the keep saying you can use a JTAG cable, but never actually said it uses a JTAG port! I'm not sure if there is any significance to that or not. It appears to use a standard...

Hi guys, I would like to know if the SPI ports are fully compatible between Freescale and Microchip ? I understand that SPI has become a "de facto" standard in the industry. The serial signals goes up to 10 Mbps, which is enough for my app, and saves data/control buses. Am I wrong to assume that SPI is always implemented the same way, and fully compatible between any chip ? I think ...

Hi, I have a requirement to use bits 6 and 7 of Port J on a Freescale MC9S12DG128CPVE device as an IIC peripheral. It is not clear to me whether or not, in addition to simply "turning on" the peripheral via the IBEN bit in the IIC Bus Control Register (IBCR), manual configuration of bits 6 and 7 on port J is required. Specifically, I have the following questions on the configuration for...
