Hi all,

 

Can anyone confirm if Exposed Pad on AD8475 in LFCSP has to be connected to GND or V-  when using +/-5V split power supply?

Datasheet in table 4, page6 tells it has to be connected to GND.   But it looks very suspicious. Normally PAD is connected to silicon die and therefore has to be on the negative potential (V-).

Demo board uses MSOP package - so can not verify it this way.

 

I'm about to submit PCB for production and it will be no way to short/cut fix it if done wrong.

 

Anybody used AD8475 in LFCSP with spit supply?
