What's the stop status when the watchdog timer stopped in the Stop mode?

Latest Updated:04/01/2006

Question:

Watchdog timer operation is stopped in the STOP mode; what happens after the STOP status is released?

Answer:

In the STOP mode, the count clock is stopped, so the timer is stopped.
When the STOP mode is released, the watchdog timer restarts from the cleared status.

Note
In the 78K0/Kx1, the watchdog timer stops in STOP mode and continues counting (without being cleared) after STOP mode is released.
