DP83848K: Recommendation for thermal pad - Connect to GND or Leave Floating

Part Number: DP83848K

Hi,

As the title says, what should i do with DP83848K thermal pad ? I know it is used for heat dissipation and datasheet recommends to add couple of vias to enhance thermal performance. But, i didn't see anything about electrical connection. Is it recommended to connect thermal pad to GND or leave it unconnected ?

Regards,

Mehmet

  • Hi Mehmet,

    The thermal pad should be electrically connected to the ground plane.
