after reading this post I understand that it is possible set up a watchdog programmatically (Netduino 2 +  > 4.1.2 )


I was wondering if there is something similar for the Netduino Mini

Hi boiacchi,

There is no software watchdog for Netduino Mini, although you could create a watchdog in managed code (perhaps paired with an external watchdog device).

We are evaluating possible inclusion of a watchdog feature in future Netduino 2 firmware (on STM32 micros).
