"pain processor"? Is that a processor which handles the processing of pain so the user does not experience it? Or is it a processor that generates pain? ☺

From the context (now hard to see), I would say that the "timing-critical and core-intensive tasks" are painful for the processor, so much so that you get a loud yelp from the watchdog timer.

Hey Max, could you restore the original "pain processor" and strike out "pain" -- i.e., "pain main processor" -- so that others can share in the fun?

That is very interesting news. Are these devices UL approved and listed. Finally, this counts most. If you employ them and UL is not happy, you may have to redesign product. So UL listing is most importnat.

Good question -- I'll ask the folks from Microchip to comment -- Max

These devices are not UL listed at this time. But its something we'll evaluate if we think it'll be an added benefit to the customer.

The vast majority of the embedded designers I know typically create MCU-based systems -- they rarely even consider using a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA).

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
