The datasheet for the at90usb162 (and others) talks about preventing eeprom corruption by enabling the internal brown-out detector. But I haven't found anything that says what the BOD voltage trigger should be.

Should I just assume that any level under which the cpu itself functions is safe for eeprom operations?

Well you only have a choice of about 3 or 4 from the dropdown menu, set it as high as you can for your VCC lelel. Say 4.3V for a 5V system etc.

Actually there are 7 choices (not included off), but only 3 are below my Vcc target of 3v3. I guess I'll do as you suggest and select the highest one within that range (3.0) and hope that's good enough for eeprom writing.
