AD8016 Digital and Analog Ground Pins/Packages...

I have a medical customer here in town that is using the AD8016AREZ6 within their design.


They are currently looking into the excessive distortion and incorrect gain being exhibited by the device and have asked me to investigate why the SOIC package has eight analog grounds plus a digital ground, while the TSSOP package that they are using only has the one digital ground?


I was hoping you guys could provide some background as to why the analog/digital ground pins are different on the two packages.


Thanks in advance for your help.
