Support for Watchdog Timer WDT

by bludin on Wed Jun 03, 2020 2:10 am

CP lacks support for watchdog timer, although the ATSAMD21/51 series and probably all other supported MCUs have this feature. Is there a specific/technical reason for not supporting it? Or is it just deemed unworthy the effort?

We *just* merged in a watchdog API with support on the nRF52840. This should make it easier to support other MCUs like the SAMDs because the API is set. However, bringing it to other MCUs isn't a high priority for us.

We're happy to help you add it though! Just drop by our Discord and we can help you get going.

Thanks. That sounds promising indeed. But this level of programming and C is new territory for me. I hope I'll find time to take it on, but not yet.
