A device for monitoring events. The device may have a programmable event engine for detecting events and a memory array coupled to the event engine. The array may store data for programming the event engine to monitor for the events. The device may have an external pin coupled to the event engine. The event engine may monitor a signal on the external pin to detect events external to the device. Alternatively, the device may output a signal on an external pin in response to detecting one of the events.
