I had one .1uf capacitor per device, but the flash memory has 3 power
supply inputs, a main power supply, a programming voltage supply, and
another one it uses to drive outputs. I only had the main power supply
Another question I had was about reset logic- I've been using an RC
circuit to provide the reset signal. What is the reason to use a more
complicated reset circuit?
