When selecting non-ceramic output capacitors, the quality of the capacitor is important to maintain stable operation and optimize transient performance. The capacitance rating and the ESR rating are important when selecting these capacitors. Polymer type capacitors with capacitance and ESR in the range shown in Table 7 are required. Capacitors with lower ESR than the minimum listed in Table 7 can be used, however using capacitors with an ESR in the range listed will provide optimal transient performance.
If using a combination of ceramic and polymer type of output capacitance, only a single polymer capacitor can be used. Depending on the output voltage setting, only capacitors that meet the specifications listed in Table 7 can be used.
|VOUT RANGE||Capacitance (µF)||ESR (mΩ)|
|0.6 V to < 3.3 V(1)||220||12||15|
|3.3 V to ≤ 10 V||150||15||25|
