AD8397 Exposed paddel connection
Please specify power supply potential to connect
The AD8397 epad is electrically isolated inside the package, the epad can be connected to any potential. We typically connect it to ground. More importantly, the epad should be connected to a copper plane with low thermal impedance to the ambient air.
I plan to use the same IC and had the same question. The datasheet asks us to void the ground planes under the IC so that means I have to connect it to the negative supply plane?
