Input Capacitor Selection

The ceramic input capacitors provide a low impedance source to the regulator in addition to supplying the ripple current and isolating switching noise from other circuits. A minimum ceramic capacitance of 4.7-µF is required on the input of the LMR36006. This must be rated for at least the maximum input voltage that the application requires; preferably twice the maximum input voltage. This capacitance can be increased to help reduce input voltage ripple and/or maintain the input voltage during load transients. In addition a small case size 220-nF ceramic capacitor must be used at the input, as close a possible to the regulator. This provides a high frequency bypass for the control circuits internal to the device. For this example a 4.7-µF, 100-V, X7R (or better) ceramic capacitor is chosen. The 220 nF must also be rated at 100-V with an X7R dielectric. The VQFN package provides two input voltage pins and two power ground pins on opposite sides of the package. This allows the input capacitors to be split, and placed optimally with respect to the internal power MOSFETs, thus improving the effectiveness of the input bypassing. In this example, place two 220-nF ceramic capacitors at each VIN-PGND location.

It is often desirable to use an electrolytic capacitor on the input in parallel with the ceramics. This is especially true if long leads/traces are used to connect the input supply to the regulator. The moderate ESR of this capacitor can help damp any ringing on the input supply caused by the long power leads. The use of this additional capacitor also helps with voltage dips caused by input supplies with unusually high impedance.

Most of the input switching current passes through the ceramic input capacitor(s). The approximate RMS value of this current can be calculated from Equation 8 and should be checked against the manufacturers' maximum ratings.
