I am using MPQ4470-AEC1 in my design. In the datasheet page no 18 contains the layout guidelines.
I have some questions about guideline no:2 and no:3 .Those guidelines are given below.
- Place input capacitors on both VIN sides (PIN8 and PIN19) and as close to the IN and GND pins as possible.
- Place the decoupling capacitor as close to the VCC and GND pins as possible
Regarding placement, they said only 'close'.
My question is how to calculate the maximum and minimum distance away from the IC so that I can place the parts (capacitor).
