I am planning to try designing a board that incorporates a switch-mode DC-DC converter, using this Texas Instruments reference design for their
TPS54386PWPR regulator part:
The bill of materials for the Texas Instruments circuit specifies C1 as a 100 µF 25 V 20% aluminum capacitor (Panasonic part # EEE-FC1E101P) that is 10.2 mm tall. I would like to substitute a part that is no more than 8 mm tall for board clearance reasons.
I was able to find several possible alternatives on Digi-Key, including other Panasonic parts, but I do not understand which specifications might be relevant to choosing a suitable replacement and which are not.
For example, all of these match the basic parameters I (mostly) understand: capacitance, voltage and tolerance. But what else do I need to take into account?
