Here is a customer who has a question about how to connect the pin –Vs when the
AD8045 is in single-supply operation. Whether the pin –Vs can be connected to
ground or just left floating? 


In a single supply application the negative supply is ground, so in this case
it is ok to tie the paddle to ground. But if you are using +/-5v you cannot,
paddle must be tied to -5v
