I received my kit last Friday and have been trying to gather all the documents and supporting documents. Seems smaller than the pictures at ~53mm x ~82 mm, but so is the Arduinio. I like the fact that the Freedom is laid out to uses the Arduino shield interface. Indeed the board is black (for production units) instead of the white boards (pro-production) I've seen in most of the pre-release photos.
As might be expected with the pre-release unit, the only item in the box was the board itself. The container lists 2 URLs, freescale.com/Freedom and freescale.com/FRDM-KL25Z, both of which point to the Kinetis L series MCUS website (http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/taxonomy.jsp?code=KINETIS_L_SERIES) with only references to the pending release of the Freedom board. A preliminary quick start guide at be found on the Element14 website under the preview RoadTest group. Element14 also has a .zip package with example projects and ide patches, a couple useful videos, but no links to IDE themselves. I was able to find one at Freescale's website, but was unable to download it. The ide was a 30-day limit evaluation copy.
But back to the board itself. The board is label as Rev A with boothcode (?) v2_1_1. Aside from the Arduino interface connectors, some of the jumper pins are unpopulated, but hardwired on the back of the board (J3, J4 & J11. They seem to a place on the back of the board for a CR-type battary connector.
Thanks to Don Bertke for his excellent summary/overview of the product brief.
