OK to keep ALFAT reset pin at 3.3v?


#1

On the ALFAT (USB board) is it OK to just tie the Reset pin to 3.3v?

The manual seems to suggest that it should be controlled by the Master–held low for a short time at power-up then set high to ensure the power supply is stable.

Right now I have it hardwired to 3.3v and everything works fine but I just want to make sure that’s OK for long-term reliability.

Thanks.


#2

well the obvious issue with doing that is that you can’t reset the alfat if need be !


#3

Using reset is always recommended but in some cases it can be optional.


#4

Good point although I don’t anticipate needing to reset after power-up.

I do have a few extra I/O on my MCU so I’ll probably assign one to the reset just to be safe.

Thanks.
