Although MIPI Alliance strongly recommends true support of Slave Reset, such that a Master can fully reset a Slave chip when needed, it is not required. Full Chip Reset allows replacement of the SRSTn trace that would normally be used to reset a Device.

The minimal reset is a reset of the I3C peripheral, at least to a level that will allow a ‘stuck’ I3C peripheral to start working again. How much of a reset that requires is up to the Slave Vendor; for example, it could be handled by an internal interrupt which would allow firmware/software in the Slave to handle the reset.
