General Description

The Multi-Counter Watchdog Timer (MCWDT_PDL) Component provides an interface to configure one or more MCWDT hardware blocks. Each block contains three counters, each of which can be configured for various system utility functions: free running counter, periodic interrupts, or watchdog reset.

The MCWDT_PDL Component is a graphical configuration entity built on top of the mcwdt driver available in the PDL. It allows schematic-based connections and hardware configuration as defined by the Component Configure dialog.
