I am trying to integrate the LTC1687 into an existing design as replacement. The pinout matches to my footprint except of pin 13. On my design, Pin 13 is connected to VDD like pin 14.
The LTC1687 datasheet says that pin 13 has "no connection".
My question is:
Am I allowed to connect pin 13 with pin 14, or is there any internal connection on pin 13 which is only used for factory calibration, testing or something?
Is this pin internally fully unconnected?
I would be very helpful if someone can answer me that question.
I checked the bonding diagram, the Pin 13 of LTC1687 has no internal connection so it could be connected to Pin 14.
Hello Neil,thank you very much, that helps me a lot!
