UICR — User information configuration registers

The user information configuration registers (UICRs) are non-volatile memory (NVM) registers for configuring user-specific settings.

For information on writing UICR registers, see the NVMC — Non-volatile memory controller and Memory chapters.

PSELRESET[n] (n=0..1)

Address offset: 0x200 + (n × 0x4)

Mapping of the nRESET function

All PSELRESET registers have to contain the same value for a pin mapping to be valid. If they do not, there will be no nRESET function exposed on a GPIO, and the device will always start independently of the levels present on any of the GPIOs.
