Hi,

Customer want to know the internal connection of thermal pad. what if they don't connect that with GND and let it floating? thanks.

  • Hi Yuan,

    The thermal pad can either be connected to GND or left floating.

    If the thermal pad is left floating, this can have an impact on thermal performance of the device.

    Connecting to the GND plane typically provides better thermal performance.
