Embedded Artists' mbed-enabled Cortex-M4 LPC4088 QuickStart board is now supported for use with Astrobe for Cortex-M4. Follow these instructions to get started by building a simple example application written in the Oberon programming language to run on your QuickStart board:

1. Connect your LPC4088 QuickStart board to a spare USB port on your PC.

2. Check that you have the latest mbed CMSIS-DAP firmware installed on your QuickStart board.

3. Start Astrobe for Cortex-M4 and select Open from the Astrobe File menu to open a source code example e.g. ShowTime.mod located in your Astrobe Examples\LPC4088 folder

4. Select Open from the Configuration menu and open the LPC4088.ini configuration file:

8. Select Upload USB Drive from the Astrobe Run menu to upload your executable file to the QuickStart board.
