Configure Pins for Switch and LED

Configure the switch button pin with EIC

In MHC, select the Pin Settings tab, scroll down to 67 in the Pin Number column, and configure the PORT pin PB19 as an external interrupt pin for switch functionality, as shown in the accompanying image.

The internal pull-up is enabled to avoid false edge detection as there is no external pull-up on the SAMC21N Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit.

Pin Settings tab

Select the Project Graph tab.

Under the bottom left tab, Available Components, expand Peripheral > EIC.

Select and double click on EIC to add the EIC module to the project.

Available Components tab

Configure the EIC block to generate an interrupt every time the user presses the switch SW0 as shown in the accompanying image, and enable debounce functionality to avoid debouncing on the switch pin.
