Host: Set/Get time is limited up to year 2038
Due to a bug in time.h library that is limited to signed 32-bit integer, and this number is interpreted
as the number of seconds since 00:00:00 UTC on 1 January 1970
Low impact – Certifications that are bounded by date will expire after year 2038

MCS00131560
Host (SPI): Sync loss may occur after the Host is sending CNYS and wait for a long period of time
before reading the response
In case of the Read operation from the Host is been interrupted by a higher interrupt for a long
duration the Host and device can get out of Sync – Interrupting the communication between the
Host and Device in the middle of transaction should be avoided
High impact - Host and Device get out of Sync
 Complete the transaction without interrupting it in the middle
 Work in Always Active (if option 1 is not available)
Next Service Pack (to protect from such case)

contains the correct MAC address.
