-Keil is basically free for university users, but costs real money for everyone else. The firmware will eventually be converted to compile with GCC, hopefully soon.+Keil is basically free for university users, but costs real money for everyone else.
  
-To compile the firmware with Keil, you just point the IDE to the "​workspace.uvmpw"​ workspace file in ~src/​device/​main_m4. It will open a workspace with 4 different projects: ​main_m4main_m0libpixy_m0libpixy_m4. Compile the 4 projects in this order: ​libpixy_m4libpixy_m0main_m0, then finally the main_m4 ​project. The main_m4 ​project will create a firmware.hex output file that you can then upload into Pixy using [[wiki:​v1:​Uploading_New_Firmware|firmware upload mode]].+To compile the firmware with Keil, you just point the IDE to the "​workspace.uvmpw"​ workspace file in ~src/​device/​main\_m4.
