Digital Power Supply

For larger pin count package types, there are several VDD and corresponding GND pins. All the VDD pins in the microcontroller are internally connected. The same voltage must be applied to each of the VDD pins.

The following figure shows the recommendation for connecting a power supply to the VDD pin(s) of the device.

Important: For systems that frequently cycle VDD or experience fast VDD transients, it is recommended to add an additional decoupling capacitor (C3) if the power supply slew rate exceeds the slew rate limits. Refer to the Supply Voltage section in the Electrical Characteristics for details about power supply slew rate limits.
