Need one confirmation for AD7949, is the exposed pad MUST be soldered? Customer would like to skip this soldering during prototype, is it ok?
Refer to page 9
21 (EPAD) Exposed Pad (EPAD) NC The exposed pad is not connected internally. For increased reliability of the solder joints, it is recommended that the pad be soldered to the system ground plane
