(1) Minimum Vin voltage must be at least 1.3V higher than Vout.
(2) The FB pin is a sensitive node. Do not touch FB while the device is in regulation.
(3) Parameter not production tested but is guaranteed by design.
Recommendation 1: Input and output filter capacitors should be placed on the same side of the PCB, and as close to the MPT11230IL package as possible. They should be connected to the device with very short and wide traces. Do not use thermal reliefs or spokes when connecting the capacitor pads to the respective nodes. The Input/Output Voltage and PGND traces between the capacitors and the MPT11230IL should be as close to each other as possible so that the gap between the two nodes is minimized, even under the capacitors.
Recommendation 2: In order to minimize the Power GND loop, it is recommended to route the input and output loops close to the same point, which is the ground of the MPT11230IL. Decoupling ceramic capacitors are to be placed as close as possible to the module in order to contain the switching noise in the smallest possible loops and to improve PVIN decoupling by minimizing the series parasitic inductance of the PVIN traces.
Recommendation 3: The large power thermal pads underneath the device must be connected to their respective planes through as many vias as possible. The drill diameter of the vias should be 0.33mm, and the vias must have at least 1-oz. copper plating on the inside wall, making the finished hole size around 0.2mm to 0.26mm. Do not use thermal reliefs or spokes to connect the vias to the ground plane. This connection provides the path for heat dissipation from the converter.
Recommendation 4: Multiple small vias (the same size as the thermal vias discussed in recommendation 3 should be used to connect ground terminal of the input capacitor and output capacitors to the system ground plane. Put the vias under the capacitors along the edge of the GND copper closest to the Voltage copper. These vias connect the input/output filter capacitors to the GND plane, and help reduce parasitic inductance in the input and output current loops. If the vias cannot be placed under CIN and COUT, then put them just outside the capacitors along the GND slit separating the two components. Do not use thermal reliefs or spokes to connect these vias to the ground plane.

Recommendation 5: It is recommended that below the MPT11230IL module, the layers under the top layer should be solid ground planes. This will provide good shielding and lower the ground impedance at the top layer where the module is mounted. AGND should also be routed as a copper plane, in order to reduce the ground impedance.
Recommendation 6: It is highly recommended to use separate nets for AGND and PGND and connect them through a 0Ω resistor or a short. This will help prevent noise from the noiser Power Ground disturbing the more sensitive Analog Ground. The PGND connection point should be near the Output Capacitor GND termination as that GND point is not as noisy as the Input capacitor GND points.

Recommendation 7: The VOUT sense point should be connected at the last output filter capacitor furthest from the VOUT pins. Keep the sense trace as short as possible in order to avoid noise coupling into the control loop.
