V5 SX95 Decoupling capacitors

Jump to solution

I'm working on the power section design for a V5 SX95.  I see in the "Power Distrobution" document that the devices need very few external capacitors because many are included inside the chip.  However, I am looking at the ML506 as a reference and it uses dozens more than required for the chip.  For example, according to the V5 power distrobution document (ug203), Table2-3, the SX50 on the ML506 requires (2) 330uF for the Vccint.  On the ML506 board schematic, it shows 36 capacitors on the Vccint.  The 330uF capacitors are included but also many 0.1uF and 10uF.

 

Where are these extra capacitors being placed and are they required or included for a more safe design?  The same questions applies to the additional capacitors for the Vccaux and Vcco supplies.

 

Thanks,

Alex

Alex,

 

The original recommendations were different that the ones we have today.

 

The original bypassing scheme turned out to be excessive, and the new recommendations are what we stand by for new designs.
