 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\_m4, main\_m0, libpixy\_m0,​ libpixy\_m4. Compile the 4 projects in this order: libpixy\_m4,​ libpixy\_m0,​ main\_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:​v2:​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.
