Hi all


I'm in the process of changing one of our older products and in that process I'm planning to enable the watchdog. My problem is that I get a watchdog timeout when my program erase/write the flash


the erase and write routines looks like they are directly take from the HCS08 Family Reference Manual and looks like the following


FlashErase1:psha             lda     #(mFPVIOL+mFACCERR) ;mask            sta     FSTAT               ;abort any command and clear errors            lda     #mPageErase         ;$40 mask pattern for page erase command            bsr     DoOnStack           ;finish command from ram-based sub            ais     #1            rts                         ;Z = 0 means there was an error;*********************************************************************DoOnStack:  pshx            pshh                        ;save pointer to flash            psha                        ;save command on stack            ldhx    #SpSubEnd           ;point at last byte to move to stackSpMoveLoop: lda     ,x                  ;read from flash            psha                        ;move onto stack            aix     #-1                 ;next byte to move            cphx    #SpSub-1            ;past end?            bne     SpMoveLoop          ;loop till whole sub on stack            tsx                         ;tsx=stack på indexreg.point to sub on stack            tpa                         ;move CCR to A for testing            and     #$08                ;check the I mask            bne     I_set               ;skip if I already set            sei                         ;block interrupts while FLASH busy            lda     SpSubSize+6,sp      ;preload data for command            jsr     ,x                  ;execute the sub on the stack            cli                         ;ok to clear I mask now            bra     I_cont              ;continue to stack de-allocationI_set:      lda     SpSubSize+6,sp      ;preload data for command            jsr     ,x                  ;execute the sub on the stackI_cont:     ais     #low(SpSubSize+3)   ;deallocate sub body + H:X + command                                        ;H:X flash pointer OK from SpSub            lsla                        ;A=00 & Z=1 unless PVIOL or ACCERR            rts                         ;to flash where DoOnStack was called ;*********************************************************************SpSub:      ldhx    low(SpSubSize+4),sp      ;get flash address from stack            sta     0,x                 ;write to flash; latch addr and data            lda     SpSubSize+3,sp      ;get flash command            sta     FCMD                ;write the flash command            lda     #mFCBEF             ;mask to initiate command            sta     FSTAT               ;[pwpp] register command            nop                         ;[p] want min 4~ from w cycle to rChkDone:    lda     FSTAT               ;[prpp] so FCCF is valid            lsla                        ;FCCF now in MSB            bpl     ChkDone             ;loop if FCCF = 0SpSubEnd:   rts          SpSubSize   equ     *- (SpSub)            ;back into DoOnStack in flash ;*********************************************************************FlashProg1: psha                        ;temporarily save entry data            lda     #(mFPVIOL+mFACCERR) ;mask            sta     FSTAT               ;abort any command and clear errors            lda     #mByteProg          ;mask pattern for byte prog command            bsr     DoOnStack           ;execute prog code from stack RAM            ais     #1                  ;deallocate data location from stack            rts                         ;Z = 0 means there was an error;*********************************************************************



so my problem is where do I "feed the dog"  in this routine so it dont timeout (it need to be feed every 23ms) I guess it needs to be in the subroutine that run in the RAM but I can't really figure out where


hope someone of you can help
