Is the RESET line in the JTAG interface required for Cortex-M3 Devices?
For a properly integrated Cortex-M3 core, the JTAG RESET line is not necessary since the JTAG software reset command SYSRESETREQ resets the processor core.
But if an application somehow disables the JTAG interface (for example: when the JTAG pins are shared with I/O pins), the debugger cannot connect to the JTAG interface. In such cases a physical chip reset is required to re-establish the JTAG connection to the debugger.
To avoid this, we strongly recommend connecting the RESET line of the microcontroller to the JTAG connector.
