I have question about Exposed Thermal Pad of UCC27512.

Can Exposed Thermal Pad connects to ground plane?




  • Hi Naoto-san,

    Thanks for inquiring about our device, my name is Mamadou Diallo and I will help address your concerns.

    The exposed pads in the WSON-6 package are not directly connected to any leads of the package, however, it is electrically and thermally
    connected to the substrate of the device which is the ground of the device. You may externally connect
    the exposed pads to GND in the PCB layout for better EMI immunity.

    Please let us know if you have further questions or press the green button if this helped address your concerns.



  • Hi Mamadou,

    Thank you.
