Open Thread example running on nRF52840-DK

I'm trying unsuccessfully to get mbed-example-os-mesh-minimal to run on nRF52840-DK. It looks like mbed doesn't support thread mesh on nRF52840 devices.

Here is my experimental repo: https://os.mbed.com/users/djabi/code/mbed-os-example-mesh-minimal

When I flash and run the bits on nRF52840-DK (PCA10056) it runs until it needs the mesh interface and then it fails:

Start mesh-minimal application Build: Jan 4 2019 23:56:15 Mesh type: MBED_CONF_NSAPI_DEFAULT_MESH_TYPE Mbed OS version: 5.11.1 Error! MeshInterface not found!

Is it possible to get mbed+thread mesh network to run on nRF52840?

The nRF52840 Development Kit is a single-board development kit for Bluetooth low energy, ANT, 802.15.4, and 2.4 GHz proprietary applications using the nRF52840 SoC.

Hi George,

That's right - the mesh example hasn't been ported to the nRF52840-DK. A list of tested boards and modules is available here:
