QUESTION

What happens when debugging using MON166 and my program executes a software reset using the SRST instruction? Specifically, does SRST restart the monitor or does it restart my program?

ANSWER

The behavior of SRST depends on how MON166 is integrated into your target platform.

If MON166 is programmed into an EPROM, then the monitor restarts when you execute the SRST instruction.

If MON166 is loaded into RAM using the bootstrap loader, the SRST instruction restarts your target program.
