Working with switching regulator - LM2596

This is a quick summary of how to work with LM2596 and how to reduce its ripple.

Original Schematic

Output (based on the original schematic)

Updated Schematic (with the optional ripple filter)

Output (based on the updated schematic)

Note, For the circuit that I use, the values for the optional output ripple filter are L2 = 33uH, C1 = 100uF, 35V.

Below is the waveform of a cheap LM2596 module that supports adjustable output.

The above waveform is taken from the module below.
