**Part Number:**MCT8316A

Dear Specialists,

My customer is considering MCT8316A and has a question.

I would be grateful if you could advise.

(1)Recommended values are listed in the data sheet for the capacitance of capacitors such as Cbk and Ccp

The actual value of ceramic capacitors decreases due to DC bias characteristics.

Is it necessary to select a capacitor so that the capacitance value in the datasheet is the recommended value considering the reduction due to the DC bias characteristics?

Or is there no problem if we basically select a capacitor with the recommended value in the data sheet?

What capacitor size should I use?

(2) What kind of problems will occur if the capacitance of Cbk is less than the recommended value (22μF)?

Could you please let me know the minimum capacitance value.

I appreciate your great help in advance.

Best regards,

Shinichi
