QUESTION

RTX166 V3 appears to clear the HLDEN bit in the PSW. My application needs to use external bus arbitration. Is there a time when the HLDEN bit can be set but not cleared by RTX166?

ANSWER

This was a problem in RTX166 Version 3 which has been corrected in RTX166 Version 4. The context switch routines were not using the correct mask value when resetting the PSW.
