Thanks, Joel. I'll have a look and give it a try...

> Yeah, I know. But the watchdog is disabled. I can remove/add code so that the time to the idle section of the application changes and every time it crashes as soon as the application finishes processing and goes idle...

What does the idle thread do in this configuration?
On some CPU models, it enters low power mode and this
may negatively impact the BDI2000 although it shouldn't.

If this is the case, disable the CPU model or BSP
specific Idle thread and go back to the portable
branch to self version.
