The input capacitors CIN0, CIN1, CIN2, and CIN3 are shown in theTypical Application. A ceramic input bypass capacitor of 10 μF is required for each phase of the regulator. Place the input capacitor as close as possible to the VIN_Bx pin and PGND_Bx pin of the device. A larger value or higher voltage rating improves the input voltage filtering. Use X7R type of capacitors, not Y5V or F. DC bias characteristics capacitors must be considered, minimum effective input capacitance to ensure good performance is 1.9 μF per buck input at maximum input voltage including tolerances and ambient temperature range, assuming that there are at least 22 μF of additional capacitance common for all the power input pins on the system power rail. See Table 54.
The input filter capacitor supplies current to the high-side FET switch in the first half of each cycle and reduces voltage ripple imposed on the input power source. A ceramic capacitor's low ESR provides the best noise filtering of the input voltage spikes due to this rapidly changing current. Select an input filter capacitor with sufficient ripple current rating. In addition ferrite can be used in front of the input capacitor to reduce the EMI.
