External Reset

An External Reset is generated by a low level on the RESET pin. Reset pulses longer than the minimum pulse width (see table in System and Reset Characteristics) will generate a reset, even if the clock is not running. Shorter pulses are not guaranteed to generate a reset. When the applied signal reaches the Reset Threshold Voltage – VRST on its positive edge, the delay counter starts the MCU after the time-out period tTOUT has expired.
