I'm looking to go for a freescale arm cortex m0, specifically for MKE04Z8VTG4 device. The question is: it is possible to programming it from uart? Without any hardware programmer? Is there some ide for c language programming?

    \$\begingroup\$ @LeonHeller wrong as usual. You would think manufacturers would make such things like bootloaders quite prominent in their data sheets, but in fact they usually do not. Typically it buried in some other family series app note. And for a missing feature (which is my strong suspicion for freescale ARMs) there is usually nothing which says it doesn't exist - only an inability to find anything which says it does. SWD should work though, and you can use another similar part like one of the USB-capable Freedom boards as a programmer with openOCD. \$\endgroup\$ – Chris Stratton Jul 3 '15 at 2:54

As far as I know, STM is providing their chips with a UART Bootloader. With them you just connect your USB-UART Module to the UART1-Pins and pull Boot0 and Boot1 High.

But mostly for ARM Cortex Stuff you can use any SWD Programmer available. Cheap one start on ebay for around 5$. STLink is just STM's Branding for their SWD.

Freescale offers you a list of IDE's you can use, of which many use C to programm
