The regulator in question: NCP161AFCT330T2G. We use it in a USB device to convert 5V to 3V. The device will only be used at room temperature.
It says in the datasheet: “The value of the input capacitor should be 1 µF or greater to ensure the best dynamic performance.” About the output capacitor however it says: “The recommended capacitor value is 1 µF.”
Is there a reason to not explicitly recommend values higher than 1 µF for the output capacitor? I am asking because we use a lot of 10 µF capacitors (MLCC imperial 0402) on the PCB and I would like to just use 10 µF capacitors for the input and output capacitors of the regulator as well (would simplify the BOM), instead of the 1 µF capacitors the regulator datasheet is calling for (for those 1 µF capacitors I would use MLCC imperial 0402 as well by the way). Are there any drawbacks of using 10 µF capacitors instead of 1 µF capacitors when literally the only difference is the capacitance?
