LPC2119/2129/2194/2292/2294 ARM-based Microcontroller

Watchdog Mode Register (WDMOD - 0xE0000000)

The WDMOD register controls the operation of the Watchdog as per the combination
of WDEN and RESET bits.


0 X Debug/Operate without the Watchdog running

1 0 Debug with the Watchdog interrupt but no WDRESET

1 1 Operate with the Watchdog interrupt and WDRESET

Once the WDEN and/or WDRESET bits are set they can not be cleared by software.
Both flags are cleared by an external reset

or a Watchdog timer underflow.

	  Jaya: the LPC allows you to choose between reset and interrupt when 
  Watchdog is triggered by means of the WDMOD register. If you set 
  WDMOD to 0x01, you'll get a normal IRQ through the VIC when the 
  watchdog is triggered; if you set it to 0x03, you will get a reset 
  (which is similar to a hardware reset).
