The assembler code for the PIC10F202 is below. I will also place the hex file for programming it in the files section of this project. The main body is only 21 lines of code. The comments should clearly document what is going on, but here's an overview:

  1. Setup I/O and watchdog timer.
  2. Sample SHUTDN pin every 10ms.
  3. SHUTDN must be high for 5 consecutive samples to be considered "HIGH". This is a noise filter.
  4. If SHUTDN is high, then delay for 20 seconds and set the GP1 high for 750µs, which disables the LTC4041.
  5. Loop forever until power is cut by the LTC4041.
; WARNING!!! Don't erase this part before programming. It will erase the
; calibration value stored in 0x01ff.

; PIC10F202 Configuration Bit Settings

; Assembly source line config statements

#include ""

; __config 0xFFFB

 ; General Notes:
 ; Internal oscillator is 4MHz (1MHz system clock). No external
 ; oscillator needed. 
 ; Watchdog timer is set for 18ms x 16 = 288ms.
 ; Only 2 stack registers. Can't call more than 1 nested subroutine.
 ; Pin Assignments:
 ;  1 - GP0: SHUTDN input
 ;  2 - VSS
 ;  3 - GP1: Shutdown output to the base of Q1
 ;  4 - GP2: unused. Set as output.
 ;  5 - VDD
 ;  6 - MCLR_, GP3: unused. tied to VDD in circuit.

Edit 2019-01-18: I change the shutdown output from a 750µs pulse to just a high value after the 20 second delay. Apparently, the pulse was too short to accomplish the task and it works fine with the step output. I updated the hex code in the files section to match.
