[hal] Fixes Argon cannot be reset by external gpio #1870

commented Aug 1, 2019


The reset pin (RST) on the side of the Argon is unable to reset the board by another board using a GPIO (e.g. a Xenon).

We saw two kinds of symptoms of this issue:

  1. Argon cannot be reset
  2. Argon can be reset, but the reset pin on Argon goes from 3.3V to 1.6V and wait for around 500ms, then it goes to 0V.



As we can see from the picture, if we configure WIFI_EN(ESPEN) pin to OUTPUT high, the voltage decline a little after the D2 diode, given there is a pull-up resistor R30 100k, we should configuration WIFI_EN(ESPEN) pin to open drain.

Steps to Test

failed case

  1. Configure WIFI_EN(ESPEN) as output mode
  2. Download below application to two Argon, connect Argon-A's D8 pin to Argon-B's reset pin
  3. Observe the symptoms

Successful case

  1. Configure WIFI_EN(ESPEN) as the open-drain mode
  2. Repeat the above steps

Example App

void setup() {
    pinMode(D8, OUTPUT);
    digitalWrite(D8, 0);
