I am sending data over serial connection from a python script to my Arduino UNO. Now initially whenever I tried to send data to the arduino, it would reset. The fix was to put a 10 microFarad capacitor between the 5V and RESET pins. I did that and everything started working.
Now after while, mistakenly today I ran the same script without the capacitor between the 5V and RESET pins and for some reason it was working perfectly well. No more resetting when a value was received over serial communication.
Is something wrong with my Arduino?
