Is a suppurt of freescale cortex m4 thinkable ???

Hello,

I know my question is a little bit off-topic. Your product support a bunch of boards and my experience with the mbed board are really good. I also understand that the support of mc's from one manufacturer is easier as supporting multible manufacturers. On the other side there are really intersting boards (23 Euro) from freescale https://mbed.org/platforms/FRDM-K64F/ . K64F Kinetis K64 MCU has some interesting parameters / interfaces /componets:
- 256 KByte SRAM
- 1MByte flash
- 16bit ADC
- Hardware encryption coprocessor for secure data transfer and storage.

What is the amount of work related to:

1. support cortex m4 mc's from NXP
2. support cortex m4 mc's from freescale ( K64F Kinetis)

Most interesting is the ratio of the amount of work.
Is the most amount of work related to cortex m4 architecture and instruction set or the support of manufacturer specific architecture aspects ?


best regards

Andreas

A wild guess - maybe 3x - 4x more effort.

Chris, Is this an answer to Q1 or Q2.

It is the ratio of work comparing Q1 to Q2.

We will shortly be announcing the details of Astrobe for Cortex-M4 which will initially target NXP's LPC4088 microcontroller. We will be supporting development on the mbed-enabled Embedded Artists LPC4088 QuickStart Board.
