@Robert K: Thank you for answering my question and providing the reference to Power Tips 54 & 55. Practically, that inductor part would have some small amount of parasitic series resistance. Won't that help in damping the second stage resonance? I understand why the resistance might be required in the circuit for SPICE simulation.

The 0.5 resistors damp the filter's second stage resonance and make it easier to compensate the control loop at the expense of the output ripple.  See Power Tips 54 and 55.

Purpose of R1 and R5

What are those 0.5 ohm resistors R1 and R5 for? Are those necessary? Also I see that you have a 150 ohm resistor at the 3.3V output. Is that necessary to provide a minimum load? I find this tip very useful and would like to try experimenting. Thanks!

IoT Network Shoot Out
July 16, 1pm EDT Thursday

Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion. Join in and ask his guests questions.
