WDTSC520 : A driver for the AMD Elan SC520 Builtin Watchdog

Copyright © 2002 Cédric LECOURT, clecourt@iliad.fr

[Intro] - [News] - [Download] - [Documentation] - [Mailing-List] - [Bugs] - [Change Log]

The AMD Elan SC520 CPU includes a builtin watchdog. When I started this project, no driver was available for it under Linux, so I decided to write one.

This drivers works on Linux kernel 2.4.18 and 2.4.19. I have been using it on Compulab's 586CORE module for months with full satisfaction.

If you have interrest in such a driver, fell free to go to the download page. Help and feedback will be really appreciate so I encourage you to subscribe to the Mailing List and share your experience with other people. Having many people testing and using this driver is a first step before submitting it for inclusion in the next kernel versions.
