Alarm latch disable bit.
When cleared to 0 the alarm bits are latched. When an alarm occurs, the corresponding alarm bit is set to “1”. The alarm bit remains until the error condition subsides and the alarm register is read. Before reading, the alarm bit is not cleared even if the alarm condition disappears. When set to 1 the alarm bits are not latched. When the alarm condition subsides, the alarm bits are cleared regardless of whether the alarm bits have been read or not.
This register selects which alarms can activate the ALARMOUT pin. The ALARMOUT must be enabled for this function to take effect.
