hello,

What is the recomended value of input and output tantalum/electrolytic capacitor LDO? What is the standard way to calculate these values or any formula?

Can anyone give me guidelines or application notes for it?

I am using few LDO in my design. One of them is TPS7953.

thanks in advance

Dear,

Usually a 10uf~100uf Tantalum for input and same for output is enough but

some regulator needs at least 47uf or higher.check your ic datasheet.

(I searched google for TPS7953 and i found nothing!)

GoodLuck.

Thanks for the answers. Datasheet gives information about the ceramic capacitor. But i also want to add Electrolytic/Tanta capacitor. Then what should be the value? Any formula to calculate these values?

Regards
Nikhil

No special formula can calculate the ESR of capacitor. Good fabricator of capacitor will provide a range of capacitor ESR. u had better choose the capacitor according to the information of IC datasheet, only like so,ur application is the best!
