MAX16141A Removing Cout

Category: Hardware
Product Number: MAX16141

I'm designing a voltage protection circuit and using the MAX1641A device which will limit the voltage to my step-down converter between the range of 9V to 36V.  The application is not automotive the voltage supply will be stable.

Can remove the COUT capacitor and have the circuit perform correctly? 

The evaluation board suggests a value of 330uF and at 36V this is very large compared to the rest of the circuit.


The step-down regulator circuit after the MAX16141A has a 22uF across the input.
