Post Question: Windows SDK to access Watchdog by user's software
Hi,

I would like to ask a hint, where can I found an SDK to be able to control/trigger watchdog on 6700T from user's software?

I already asked AMD about it, waiting for their response.

The main problem is the watchdog driver for windows is a windows service, which will trigger the watchdog hardware.
In our case one would like to trigger/control the watchdog from software, so, technically the user's software will do the same as the provided wdt driver.

Do you know such an SDK?

Thank you!
István

are you familiar with programming? It should be relatively easy to make yourself if it's the only feature you need in my opinion. Or I did not understand you correctly? I'm not aware of the specific software, but there's a specific thing called timing relays for that purpose... I hope that helps at least a little. Also here's a link for a watchdog code example, you may find it useful - https://os.mbed.com/cookbook/WatchDog-Timer

Hi Harris,

Thank you for your hint.
I already thought to use the gpio of fitlet with an external microcontroller which can reset the fitlet, but using the internal watchdog is much simpler.
I'm still waiting for feedback from AMD, even I am not really optimistic about their response (I mean, they will not answer).

I got an answer from AMD, where they points to this url:
https://developer.amd.com/tools-and-sdks/

It seems I have to dig deeper to figure out, which one we need for this specific use case.
