For all switching power supplies, the layout is an important step in the design, especially at high peak currents and high switching frequencies. If the layout is not carefully done, the regulator could show stability problems as well as EMI problems. Therefore, use wide and short traces for the main current path and for the ground tracks. The input capacitor, output capacitor, and the inductor should be placed as close as possible to the IC.
The feedback divider should be placed as close as possible to the ground pin of the IC.
