Part Number: TPS65150
Upon examining the suggested footprint on page 46 of the datasheet, I noticed a keepout area underneath pin 1 of the device. Details are as such:
Couple of questions:
1. Why is this required?
2. Is this required on all four corners, or just the one corner.
In reply to Ilona:
So that I understand correctly. Do we need to include this keepout on the PCB layout? Or is it only for a visual reference?
PCB space located at the corners of the QFN package is very valuable when fanning out the traces. Using this to place a via and/or trace is the preferred choice.
