TPS6213x/6214x/6215x/6216x/6217x Internal connection of exposed pad

Q: TPS6213x/6214x/6215x/6216x/6217x Internal connection of exposed pad by 1878688

Is the Exposed pad connected electrically to AGND or PGND internally?


A: Re: TPS6213x/6214x/6215x/6216x/6217x Internal connection of exposed pad by 1090425

This is explained in the datasheet at the very end of the layout section:

The Exposed Thermal Pad must be soldered to the circuit board for mechanical reliability and to achieve appropriate power dissipation. Although the Exposed Thermal Pad can be connected to a floating circuit board trace, the device will have better thermal performance if it is connected to a larger ground plane. The Exposed Thermal Pad is electrically connected to AGND.
