Hello everyone,

I have a questions about turning on a Gumstix. I would like my device to run a few seconds after losing power, and a large capacitor does the trick nicely; however, I may want to limit the charging current. Are there specific power-on characteristics needed on the Gumstix 3.3V line? Is it good/bad/ugly to hold it in reset while the power is coming on?

A short burst of Googling failed to reveal the answers, but I am up for doing some reading.
