    Hello all,

    Does anyone know where I can get a kit for a beginner for these microprocessors? Do they even exist? I'm used to using this:, which is a microcontroller.

    I need something that is for beginners, I want to learn how to use these processors. I looked everywhere on google, but Freescale's eval board is $750. Which I'll take if that's all there is.

    Oddly enough I have had one gathering dust for a really long time. It's a MPC5566 with a JTAG and all. I haven't used it in some time. drop me a line at adanaila [ at ]
