Hello,

I am wondering how to connect the exposed pad of the D flip flop "HMC723LP3E". The datasheet is contradictory.


Vee:
Page 1 and 6: "Package Base: Vee"
Page 7: "The exposed package base should be connected to Vee"
Ground:
Page 5: "EXPOSED GROUND PADDLE MUST BE CONNECTED TO RF/DC GROUND". And: "ALL GROUND LEADS AND GROUND PADDLE MUST BE SOLDERED TO PCB RF GROUND"


The other DFFs from Analog have straight guidelines regarding the exposed pad (sometimes ground and sometimes Vee).

 

Hopefully someone can answer my question
