I am designing two linear power supplies that will:

1. Drop 9V DC to 5V DC to power a Raspberry Pi around 2.5A
2. Drop 9V DC to 7.5V DC to power a DAC under 3A

I have been reading the datasheet:

http://www.ti.com/lit/pdf/slus215

Which advises (see page 5) that a timing capacitor, C, is required:

CT: Short-circuit timing capacitor and shutdown input for the UCC283−ADJ version. Pulling CT below 0.25 V turns off the regulator and places it in a low quiescent-current mode. A timing capacitor, C, from CT to GND programs the duration of the pulsed short-circuit on-time. On-time, tON, is approximately given by:

tON = 750 k * C

Whilst the formula is given, I am at a loss as to what size capacitor I should use as C, for each of my implementations.

I was planning R1 to be 50kOhms and R2 to be 10kOhms.

Can anyone advise me on C?

Thanks.
