Due to the EOL of the Intel 87C196KC, I am redesigning our controllers with the MC9S12E64. In our application, the 87C196KC was the reset master in our multi-processor system. I need a way of driving the external reset pin based on various conditions.
I believe I can generate an immediate reset by enabling the COP watchdog and then writing garbage (not 0x55 or 0xAA) to the ARMCOP register. Does this also drive the external reset pin?
