Apply DIRECT_RESET on an input port or other signal to have it go directly to the RESET line of a flop when there is more than one possible reset or when you want to force the synthesis tool to use the reset lines of the flop.

Architecture Support
Architecture Support
Applicable Objects
The DIRECT_RESET attribute can be placed on any port or signal.
Values
TRUE (or YES)
Direct synthesis to use the RESET line of a flop.
FALSE (or NO)
Do not direct synthesis to use the RESET line. This is the default.

Syntax

Verilog Syntax
(* direct_reset = "yes" *) input rst3;
VHDL Syntax
entity test is port(
in1 : std_logic_vector (8 downto 0); 
clk : std_logic;
rst1, rst2, rst3 : in std_logic
out1 : std_logic_vector(8 downto 0)); 
attribute direct_reset : string;
attribute direct_reset of rst3: signal is “yes”; end test;
XDC Syntax
set_property direct_reset yes [get_nets –of [get_ports rst3]]
Note: For XDC usage, this attribute only works on type net, so you need to use the get_nets command for the object.
