ADP7118 Soft Start Time

Hi All,


I have a question about SStime calculation for the ADP7118 LDO.

In the data sheet page 15, SStime calculation equation is expressed as next,

SStime (usec) = 380us + 0.6*Css, (where Css is in F)


When Css is 10nF, SStime is calculated as 380us + 0.006us = 380.006 us

On the other hand, Figure 49 shows SStime curve, and SStime curve for Css=10nF is more than 6ms.

What is wrong on my understanding?


By the way, Capacitance of 0.1uF is acceptable for Css?


Best Regards,
