    BCM20737S input capacitors and placement

    janos

      Hi,

       

      what are the recommended power input capacitors for the BCM20737S module? In the WICED Smart reference design, I can see that there are 10uF and 100nF capacitors used, is this combination recommended?

       

      Also, in the gerber data I can see that three components are placed directly underneith the BCM module, one zero ohms resistor (R9) and presumably two 100nF input capacitors. Is this close placement to the power input necessary? As I am aiming towards single-sided assembly, I would appreciate if I could place all the components on the top side, outside of the keepout area. Can you guys advise me to do or not to do so?

       

      Thank you very much,

      Cheers
