I was wondering when the hardware watchdog on de N2+ will be supported.


As the network stack is a bit buggy, this really needs to be implemented. I have to manually reset my device twice a day as the network thread has blocked all other threads (and a software watchdog is unusable).


I'm currently looking at an external watchdog circuit using the 74HC4060, but I don't see the point adding hardware complexity when it is already there...


Kind regards,

Niels R.

AFAIK the hardware watchdog is already used under the hood by the micro framework (i might be wrong though), however i dont think a typical hardware watchdog will be much use to managed code as they tend to operate in mS timeframes whilst the netduino has (and netmf in general) has a bit of a non standard usecase as explained by Mario here: http://highfieldtale...r-the-netduino/
