UC1846: UC1846 reference pin recommended external capacitance

Part Number: UC1846
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: , UC1901, UC1843, UC1825


The datasheet for UC1846 shows a recommended external capacitance in the range of 1-2.2uF. However, this specification is absent in the UC1846-SP datasheet. We have been using an external capacitance of 10uF on the ref pin for quite a while now. Could someone confirm if this is a stringent requirement. If not, what deviations in performance are expected under all operating conditions. I am drawing a current of 5mA from the ref pin. Let me know if further details are needed

Thanks and regards
