Part Number: TPS7B86-Q1

Hi, I have a question about TPS7B8633QKVURQ1

The GND pin is so short, so how can I connect this pin to thermal pad?

Or the GND pin already connected to the thermal pad internally and I just let it float?

  • Hello Mingkang,

    No, that middle pin cannot be soldered to the PCB. Fortunately, as you suggest, that pin is connected internally to the tab on the back of the device. Therefore, you only need to worry about connecting the tab to ground.
