Try building Blinky for the 52840 with 'mbed compile -t GCC_ARM -m NRF52840_DK'. Note the product page you pointed to above is for the NRF52_DK (NRF52832 or pca10040).

The NRF52840_DK page is [here[https://os.mbed.com/platforms/Nordic-nRF52840-DK]]

Hi Uri,

Please try updating the firmware of your board by following the instructions here: https://armmbed.github.io/DAPLink/?board=Nordic-nRF52-DK

Then once the update is complete, please let me know if you are able to run mbed-os-example-blinky successfully.

Thank you!

Hi Jenny, Sorry for the newbie question. Uri asked about the nRF52840-DK board, which isn't listed on the supported boards page (https://os.mbed.com/platforms/?tvend=11). You referred him to a page for updating firmware on the older nRF52-DK board. Am I missing something here ? Is the nRF52840-DK board actually supported despite not being listed ? Are the two boards similar enough that they share a firmware update page ? Thanks, John
