If you Arduino-compatible or other mircocontroller product needs to run continuously, there may be a risk of a board lockup or failure. This can usually be due to unexpected events not being planned for in the code or perhaps power issues. No matter what the possible scenario is you can now have your Arduinor reset after one or five minutes by using our new Watchdog Timer Module:
The Watchdog Timer Module listens for a signal from your Arduino or other microcontroller - such as a HIGH signal from a digital output, and if one is not received in the required time the Watchdog will reset the Arduino. You can select between one and five minutes for the duration before resetting the Arduino or other board. And with our Quick Start guide you can add this functionality to your project in no time at all.
Our Watchdog Timer Module is now in stock and ready to ship, so for more information and to order - visit the Watchdog Timer product page. And to keep up with news, products and more from Freetronics, please follow us on your choice of facebook, Google+, and twitter.
