Remote Capacitor Operation

The LP5907-Q1 requires at least a 1-µF capacitor at the OUT pin, but there are no strict requirements about the location of the capacitor in regards to the pin. In practical designs the output capacitor may be located up to 10 cm away from the LDO. This means that there is no need to have a special capacitor close to the output pin if there is already respective capacitors in the system (like a capacitor at the input of supplied part). The remote capacitor feature helps user to minimize the number of capacitors in the system.

As a good design practice, keep the wiring parasitic inductance at a minimum, which means to use as wide as possible traces from the LDO output to the capacitors, keeping the LDO output trace layer as close as possible to ground layer and avoiding vias on the path. If there is a need to use vias, implement as many as possible vias between the connection layers. The recommendation is to keep parasitic wiring inductance less than 35 nH. For the applications with fast load transients, it is recommended to use an input capacitor equal to or larger to the sum of the capacitance at the output node for the best load transient performance.
