ok thats good to know then.
so its bassically like RAM then and it keeps re-writing the data to that memory and resetting it?
I have two motors running off my arduino UNO.
both 12v, gaining their power from the Vin pin and controlled by two IRFZ44N transistors. According to the data sheet and what i have read, the Arduino is able to handle up to 1amp from this pin?
1 motor draws initially 200ma then its a little lower once up and running. Both protected by Diodes even though there should be no chance of the motor providing power due to them needing a high torque to turn in the first place. Also i have a capacitor over each as i was told this was to drowned out noise?
I hope this is right anyway.
Is it normal for the motors to try turn on when uploading new code to the arduino? is this down to the pins becoming live for a split second while its uploading? It works fine every other time when i plug it in.
