I'm wondering what the experience of others has been so far as relying on the on-chip power-up reset. I've noticed that Olimex uses a Zetex supply monitor on at least one of their AVR boards...., makes me wonder. I suppose that in their case, they can't be sure what the programmer may do...., or the initial state of the internal reset mechanism. At any rate, I'd like to have the reset pin available as I/O....., so my question is: What has been people's experience as far as the best combination of reset parameters to assure reliable start-up?
