4.3.1. Reset Signals

The Include cpu_resetrequest and cpu_resettaken signals reset signals setting provides the following functionality. When on, the Nios II processor includes processor-only reset request signals. These signals let another device individually reset the Nios II processor without resetting the entire system. The signals are exported to the top level of your system.

Note: You must manually connect these signals to logic external to your Qsys system.

For more information on the reset signals, refer to the Processor Architecture chapter of the Nios II Processor Reference Handbook.
