When I run my program on a Silicon Labs device, I never see it
Many SiLabs devices have a watchdog timer that gets set to a very
short interval upon reset. If your program contains a large
amount of initialized data, the watchdog can run out before the
initialization code finishes.
To keep the watchdog from resetting during data initialization,
you should put code in startup.a51 to disable it. Consult
the data sheet for your particular device, to find the correct
procedure to use, in order to disable the watchdog.
