Nope, just been using the Mod5282 to prototype another hardware design
with an integrated 5282 Coldfire MPU, and give the high level software
guys a target to play with while we finalise the hardware design. I must
say I like the 5282 - stacks of peripherals, and enough flash and
RAM on-chip to run in single chip mode for simple applications,
particularly if you don't need an OS and the associated overhead. The
68000 instruction set is nice if you're hitting low level stuff too,
and the background debugging support is downright luxurious :) When ah

Depends entirely on what you want to do of course :)
