RECT capacitance is used to smooth the AC to DC conversion and to prevent minor current transients from passing to OUT. For this 500-mA IMAX, select two 10-µF capacitors and one 0.1-µF capacitor. These should be rated to 16 V.
OUT capacitance is used to reduce any ripple from minor load transients. For this solution, a single 10-µF capacitor and a single 0.1-µF capacitor are used.
