POWER SAVING MODES (Cont’d)
8.3 WAIT MODE
WAIT mode places the MCU in a low power con-
sumption mode by stopping the CPU.
This power saving mode is selected by calling the
All peripherals remain active. During WAIT mode,
the I[1:0] bits of the CC register are forced to ‘10’,
to enable all interrupts. All other registers and
memory remain unchanged. The MCU remains in
WAIT mode until an interrupt or RESET occurs,
whereupon the Program Counter branches to the
starting address of the interrupt or Reset service
The MCU will remain in WAIT mode until a Reset
or an Interrupt occurs, causing it to wake up.

OR SERVICE INTERRUPT
1. Before servicing an interrupt, the CC register is
pushed on the stack. The I[1:0] bits of the CC reg-
ister are set to the current software priority level of
the interrupt routine and recovered when the CC
register is popped.
