Good day community, I'm busy working on a project with a Cerebot MX7 Pro. It's me now noticed that the board so every 5 to 10 minutes restarts. This is not intended by me. I would be happy to send you my project to be ruled by an error on the board.

I am using MPLAB X 3.15 with the XC32 1.40 on the PowerDebug USB connection.

I hope for an insightful answer or input.

Hi MRuoss,

I was able to replicate your problem, but I am still looking into why it restarts periodically. Have you had any breakthroughs since you asked the question?

While investigating this issue through Digilent Technical Support channel, we were answered by him that he found the cause for this behavior:

#pragma config FWDTEN = OFF // Enable Watchdog Timer #pragma config WDTPS = PS1024 // Watchdog Timer post-scaler
