I know it was posted over on stellarisit.com

But just in case-

"The FRDM-KL25Z is a Development Tool for Kinetis KL25 Series, This Kinetis KL2 MCU family is pin, software and tool compatible with all other Kinetis L families and adds a full-speed USB 2.0 On-The-Go controller with an integrated low-voltage regulator. The Kinetis KL2 MCU family is also compatible with the Kinetis K20 (ARM® Cortex™-M4) family, providing a migration path to higher performance and feature integration.
Devices start from 32 KB of flash in a small-footprint 5 x 5 mm 32 QFN package extending up to 256 KB in a 121 MBGA package. Each combines ultra-low-power performance with a rich suite of analog, communication, timing and control peripherals."

See "Register to qualify for a free board" from the page http://www.futureele...,Nea:True,N:750.
Otherwise, $12.95: http://www.futureele...ONDUCTOR9023990

From the User Manual:
"5.8 Arduino Compatibility
The I/O headers on the FRDM-KL25Z are arranged to allow compatibility with peripheral boards (known as shields) that connect to Arduino™ and Arduino-compatible microcontroller boards. The outer rows of pins (the even numbered pins) on the headers share the same mechanical spacing and placement as the I/O headers on the Arduino Revision 3 (R3) standard."

Great... they're perpetuating the spacing mistake that became a standard. :problem:

There is an interesting firmware from CoreBASIC that runs on this board..

Yes, CoreBASIC on the Freedom board looked interesting.

I'm not crazy about the Kinetis line.  I think the CM0, CM3, and CM4 parts from STMicro are overall the best.

That reminds me of the old TI LM3S6965 eval kit that cost $75 USD. Minus the OLED and ethernet.

I'm an eye-for-an-eye, tooth-for-a-tooth kind of guy.  -  So you support a system that would leave everyone blind and toothless. -  Not everyone. Just the bad guys.
