Is it okay to connect the ADG1611BRUZ's and ADG1436YCPZ's Exposed Pad to Gnd?

 

In the datasheet it states that the exposed paddle (EP) should be connected to
Vss. The EP is internally connected to Vss and if the EP is connected to ground
a short will occur and so the part is not operable. If the EP is left open
circuit the part should operate okay but there may be thermal or lifetime
concerns
