+ * @brief Low-level timer based on SysTick
+ * SysTick is a 24 bit down-counting timer that is implemented on every Cortex-M
+ * processor. It runs at the same frequency as the CPU and will generate an
+ * interrupt when it reaches zero.
+ * To comply with the RIOT timer interface that expects an up-counting, monotonic
+ * timer, SysTick is augmented by software to fulfill these requirements.
+ * This also adds a software prescaler to simulate arbitrary frequencies and introduces
ztimer still expects the timer to be up-counting, right?
