external circuitry you indicated is diff. from power cicruitry.
Are you trying to refer to circuitry which will reset the flash and
processor separately, the way they want it ?

I wonder if this is the way most people design their watchdig
circuitry ? any comments ? is most standard way to go about this a
processor connected reset signals ? say ixp425 if it matters as a
reference benchmark ? or power reset ? or custom external circuitry
which caters to all peripherals wishes ?
