When a ceramic output capacitor is used, the stability criteria in Equation 7 cannot be satisfied. The ripple injection approach as shown in Figure 8-2 is implemented to increase the ripple on the VFB pin and make the system stable. In addition to the selections made using steps 1 through step 6 in Section 8.2.1.2.2, the ripple injection components must be selected. The C2 value can be fixed at 1 nF. The value of C1 can be selected between 10 nF to 200 nF.

N is also used to provide enough margin for stability. It is recommended N=2 for V_{OUT} ≤ 1.8 V and N=4 for V_{OUT} ≥ 3.3 V or when L ≤ 250 nH. The higher V_{OUT} needs a higher N value because the effective output capacitance is reduced significantly with higher DC bias. For example, a 6.3-V, 22-µF ceramic capacitor may have only 8 µF of effective capacitance when biased at 5 V.
Because the VFB pin voltage is regulated at the valley, the increased ripple on the VFB pin causes the increase of the VFB DC value. The AC ripple coupled to the VFB pin has two components, one coupled from SW node and the other coupled from the VOUT pin and they can be calculated using Equation 12 and Equation 13 when neglecting the output voltage ripple caused by equivalent series inductance (ESL).
It is recommended that V_{INJ_SW} to be less than 50 mV and V_{INJ_TOTAL} to be less than 60 mV. If the calculated V_{INJ_SW} is higher than 50 mV, then other parameters need to be adjusted to reduce it. For example, C_{OUT} can be increased to satisfy Equation 11 with a higher R7 value, thereby reducing V_{INJ_SW}. Use Equation 14 to calculate C_{OUT} capacitance needed.

The DC voltage at the VFB pin can be calculated by Equation 15:
And the resistor divider value can be determined by Equation 16:
