Reset and Reboot are not working in my custom imx7 board

Contributor I

Good day!


I am working on a custom imx7d board and I'm currently encountering an issue on reset (in uboot) and reboot (in the filesystem). My unit hangs after the said commands.

Is there any factor preventing my unit to reboot/reset?

Are there any pins that can affect this?

below are the logs while executing all above-mentioned command,

Hope you can give your help and suggestions

Reset in Uboot
=> reset                                                                        
resetting ...

the board will hang after this

Reboot in Filesystem

    It is highly recommended to remove power (voltage source) to all components on
the board in the event of a processor reset. This avoids problems with proper state of
components, critical for rebooting the processor - if  they are in the necessary state to

support  a reboot. So, the total POR may be recommended for reboot (via WDOG),

which in its turn asserts system POR via PMIC.


   Look at the  circuit on the reference design.
