Is there a minimum load requirement for the TPS74201?
The minimum load in this circuit will probably draw less than 100mA from this regulator.
After going through the datasheet, the LDO is stable at any output capacitor value, however no explicit minimum loading.
The Bias Current and Load Regulation parameters are specd out at 0mA, but I am having hard deciphering what this could mean in terms of minimum loading. Based on this information, it seems like there should not be an issue with a load of less than 100mA or light loads.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.
