I am building a perfboard Arduino.
I cam across a blog where the builder had placed a pull-down resistor on his reset pin, effectively placing the board in permanent reset mode. This made me realise a pull-up resistor is required, or is it?
I am wondering if I need to put a pull up resistor on the reset pin, or if I can safely allow it to float.
Currently I have a 2313 chip on a standalone board which does not have the reset pin pulled up or down when not programming and this seems to be running fine. Am I setting myself up for some random resets or is it safe?
Thanks for any advice
