9.5 Private timer and watchdog

The private timer and watchdog blocks have a 32-bit counter that generates an interrupt when it reaches zero, and an eight-bit prescaler value to qualify the clock period.

Other features of the private timer and watchdog blocks include:

  • Configurable single-shot or auto-reload modes.
  • Configurable starting values for the counter.
  • The clock for these blocks is PERIPHCLK.

The watchdog can be configured as a timer, by configuring the CLK, PERIPHCLK, and PERIPHCLKEN signals.
