I am revising my designs and I looking at making them more compact. So I am venturing into the world of surface mounted components.
My question is about the capacitors to use with a 5V regulator.
Here are the items I am looking at using:
- 5v Regulatorhttp://www.digikey.co.nz/product-detail/en/L78M05CDT-TR/497-1203-1-ND/586203
- 0.33uF Caphttp://www.digikey.co.nz/product-detail/en/CL21B334KBFNNNE/1276-1123-1-ND/3889209
- 0.1uF Caphttp://www.digikey.co.nz/product-detail/en/CL21F104ZBCNNNC/1276-1007-1-ND/3889093
Can I use the 0805 caps or are there a reason that the little "Can"http://www.digikey.co.nz/product-detail/en/EEE-1HA0R1SR/PCE3913TR-ND/766080 like capacitors are used?
I also notice that the 0.1uf had a crazy amount of tolerance... -20%, +80% (My feeling is that I should look for another option,right?)
Any input will be appreciated. Thanks. ;)
