I need to make sure that my ATtiny does not reset unexpectedly. To do that, I am planning on connecting the RESET pin directly to VCC.
However, I have heard some places that you need a 10k resistor between VCC and the RESET pin, to prevent too much current from flowing into the RESET pin and burning the IC. I have also seen some places that you do not need a resistor between VCC and RESET, and I have also read a few places that you do not even need to connect RESET to anything, because it is pulled high internally.
I could not find any definitive answer on this, and I would like to know what the case would be for each of these condidions (directly to VCC, VCC through resistor, don't connect RESET pin at all) is.
