Anybody using the Freescale 56F800E parts?

If so, what is your opinion of technical support and Metrowerks tool set.

I am using the 56F807 for a motor control system I am designing as a home project. I have not tried the technical support, I figured out what I needed from the documentation. The documentation is OK to pretty good. There have been a couple of errors in the documnetation that caused some real head scratching, but I was able to get it sorted out. I did not use the canned "bean" functions for dealing with the peripheral hardware set, I wrote all my own peripheral handling code and the documentation has supported doing this without much pain.

The Metroworks tool set has been decent. I am not especially fond of IDE's but I can work with it. The compiler/linker has not had any bugs that I have found. The debugger has worked pretty well.

The peripheral set on the '807 is excellent for closed loop motor control and the processor is fast enough to not have to be too frugal in the coding.

Good Luck, Bob
