Table 1. Available Interrupt Vectors and Sources
Name Vector Description Conditions
RTC Real-Time Counter overflow and compare match interrupt
  • Overflow (OVF): The counter has reached the value from the RTC.PER register and wrapped to zero
  • Compare (CMP): Match between the value from the Counter (RTC.CNT) register and the value from the Compare (RTC.CMP) register
PIT Periodic Interrupt Timer interrupt A time period has passed, as configured by the PERIOD bit field in RTC.PITCTRLA

When an interrupt condition occurs, the corresponding interrupt flag is set in the peripheral’s Interrupt Flags (peripheral.INTFLAGS) register.

An interrupt source is enabled or disabled by writing to the corresponding enable bit in the peripheral’s Interrupt Control (peripheral.INTCTRL) register.

An interrupt request is generated when the corresponding interrupt source is enabled, and the interrupt flag is set. The interrupt request remains active until the interrupt flag is cleared. See the peripheral’s INTFLAGS register for details on how to clear interrupt flags.
