ADA4898 Thermal Pad Connection

Question asked by smacleod on Aug 9, 2016

The data sheet says the part works best with the thermal pad connected to a negative supply plane.  We are operating the device for a plus/minus 15 V supply and connected the thermal pad to ground.  Is there any risk or degradation of performance from making the connection to ground.  On a new set of boards, we have had one part fail, but don't know the cause.
