Anyone wonder why is it called "Window Watchdog Timer"?
This is because the Watchdog has a time window for the application to service it.
A successful service in this time window set the counter back to zero and start counting again but if service is attempt outside the time window, results in a system reset.
With this time window, it increases the system integrity by making sure that the system is running precisely.
