Adding a WD Timer to the Teensy

The idea of this project is the development of a power analyzer based on the ACS71020 power monitoring IC.

When hitting "read" of the button in rapid succession, the Teensy somehow stopped working and had to be reset manually. To fix this problem, I used a Watchdog-Timer which is fed periodically and resets the teensy after 30s, if not "fed". The library used for this is the WDT_T4 library by tonton81.

The reason for the bug under load is yet to be determined.
