Dear community members,

I'm working with the Kinetis K series Product Update Report (KPUR). There are two kinds of watchdog is written : Software Watchdog and Hardware Watchdog.

However when I check out the Reference Manual such as MK70FX512VMJ15, There are two kinds of watchdog in different name : External watchdog monitor (EWM) and Software watchdog (WDOG).
I consider External watchdog monitor (EWM) is the Hardware Watchdog which is written in KPUR but I'm confuse if it was correct or not.

Does anyone give me a lecture to clearly understand about this?
Thank you!
