# Forum: µC & Digital Electronics Problem when building Brownout Detector

Dear all,

here I have some questions about the brownout detector. I haven't any
experience of interrupt, maybe I've done it with some dummy thought.

I have an ATMEL SAMC21XPLAINED Board in hand, and i want to try the
brownout detection interrupt. First I configure the VDDBOD in the eFuse
(Enable, Hysteresis, Level). From the generated atmel start project
source code, I found a system_handler, as said in commends, which is for
the interrupt of Power manager, Main clock, osc controller, protection
access controller and SUPC(supply controller). The SUCP is theoretically
what i need for the brownout detection.

Then I built a System_handler function, aiming to store the test data
into EEPROM and see a short blink of LED, as below:

void SYSTEM_Handler()
{
RWW_FLASH_BOD();
gpio_toggle_pin_level(LED0);

}

The current situation is, every time when I cut off the supply, and want
to turn it on again to check its EEPROM. Then I found the LED blinks
after the power on, that means the SYSTEM_Handler detect in the
meanwhile the restart. My assumption is that the mentioned interrupt
source above have the same priority. In this case how can I set that the
Handler just about the Brownout, not others? Or if I understand it
totally wrong, how should I configure and call the Brownout Function?
