C51: PROGRAM NEVER REACHES MAIN
Information in this article applies to:
When I run my program on a Silicon Labs device, I never see it reach Main().
Many SiLabs devices have a watchdog timer that gets set to a very short interval upon reset. If your program contains a large amount of initialized data, the watchdog can run out before the initialization code finishes.
To keep the watchdog from resetting during data initialization,
you should put code in startup.a51 to disable it.
Consult the data sheet for your particular device, to find the
correct procedure to use, in order to disable the watchdog.
