Mbed NXP LPC1768 Development board and LPCXpresso

I just received an mbed NXP LPC1768 development board and corresponding base board. To my surprise and disappointment, it is apparently not compatible with the debugging environment of LPCXpresso. That makes it fairly useless to me.

Examination of the schematic reveals a chip called the MBED-IF01 that is apparently an “interface” chip. It has a set of signals that look suspiciously like a JTAG port and in fact they’re connected to the JTAG pins of the LPC1778. This would imply that it should be possible to make the board compatible with LPCXpresso. Does anyone know how to do that?



I am not familiar with LPCXpresso; however, a quick Google search for “LPC1768 JTAG” turned up this thread on the mbed forums that discusses few methods for debugging code on the LPC1768.
