HMC1040LP3CE N/C pins

Hi all,


Pin descriptions in the datasheet @ HMC1040LP3CE, it say following,

Pin No:5-8, 14


The pins are not connected internally; however, all data shown herein was measured with these pins connected to RF/DC ground externally.


Do you recommend "the N/C pins connect to RF/DC ground externally" ?

Connecting the N/C pins to the ground might impact to thermal or electric performance ?

Thermal performance is more better, and electric performance is no impact ?


Best regards,
