What is the recommended connection of the exposed paddle on the ADT7x20 temperature sensors?
As stated in the datasheet, the exposed paddle of the ADT7320 and ADT7420 temperature sensors must be connected to GND. If this is not possible, the paddle should be left floating in which case the response of the sensors to rapid changes of the monitored temperatures may be slower compared with the case where the paddle is grounded.
Never connect the paddle to a different potential other than GND!
