Will it be possible to generate interrupts using WDT at fix intervals?

Latest Updated:03/26/2009

Question:

When the WDT is used as an interval timer is it possible generate interrupts at fixed intervals ?

Answer:

Yes. However since the WDT generates only overflow interrupts* the initial value should be written in TCNT. Note that TCNT is always in the reset state when TME = 0. Note: * An NMI interrupt setting can also be made in the H8S/2100 Series.
