    Any brown-out shut down control pin for Edison running linux?

    Saxe

      I am considering Node-Red/Linux on Intel Edison module in my design.

       

      Linux needs to be shut down properly, so I added a supercap to keep it alive for extra period after the power is removed. The supercap controller has a output control to indicate loss of external power. If I connect it to the PWRBTN# of Edison module, would it be enough to force Edison/Linux to shutdown properly or should I connect it to a GPIO and monitor this flag and tell linux to shot down?

       

      Thanks for your help!
