BQ25505: Pin 6 connection

Part Number: BQ25505


There is a contradiction in the datasheet.

  • On page 5, in the Pin Functions table, it says that pin 6 needs to be connected to VSS via the IC's PowerPad.
  • However, in figure 40, the Layout Example, pin 6 is not connected.

May I know who is right?

And there is an ambiguous term:

Is the PowerPad the Thermal Pad in the drawing on page 5?

Thank you!
