I'm (still) selecting parts to build a 3 to 5V boost DC-DC converter using the LTC3525-5. The board I'm planing to build is based on the typical application shown in page 11 of the aforementioned datasheet, which schematic I reproduce below:
I'm having trouble finding the right output capacitor. The closest match I can find at my local suppliers is this 10uF X5R capacitor (JMK212BJ106KD-T) rated at 6.3V, but I think that's too close to the 5V output.
So, my questions are:
- Is the 6.3V capacitor appropriate for my application? If not, what would be a suitable replacement?
- What will be the maximum voltage I should expect at the output capacitor terminals? What would be the minimum voltage rating for such capacitor?
I tried, but couldn't find such information on the datasheet or elsewhere.
