CCS/66AK2H06: GEL_Reset() function

Part Number: 66AK2H06

Tool/software: Code Composer Studio


When using 66AK2H06 with CCS, what GEL_Reset() exactly performs?

CCS help say:
“The Reset() function resets the target system and reloads the monitor. Note that this is a software reset. The GEL_Reset() function performs a device reset via emulation. Peripherals, by design, may or may not be affected by this function.”

Is this warm reset (same as AD2 nReset pin)?

Thanks and regards,

  • Koichiro,

    I am not sure what you mean by the function Reset(). 

    As the manual says, the GEL_Reset() is pretty soft ("warm") and usually wired inside the device itself - from the CCS menu, it most of the times it corresponds to the "CPU Reset". The TRM of the device should indicate what depth the Emulation reset reaches (it varies from device to device). 

    Alternatively, you can also use the function GEL_AdvancedReset() and specify one of the other Reset functions available - the C66AK2H usually has the "CPU Reset", the "System Reset" and the "Reset Emulator". The "System Reset" is normally tied to the nRESET signal on the JTAG connector, but that is left for the PCB designer to properly wire it to the device. 

    Hope this helps,
