thermal pad to ground?

  1. On page 3 its says "The exposed pad is electrically not connected"
    So connect it to anything you want. Your ground plane is usually the
    best bet.

  2. or just look harder on page 3!

  3. damn, right under my nose... must be going blind. I searched the pdf for pad
    and it only returned the one on the IC ;/

    thx
     

  4. It's there... I'm just going crazy... (broke my glasses and it's been 3
    weeks and still haven't revieced my new pair so I do have a good excuse ;)

    ** Wrong terminology !!!

    The term " thermal pad " has a well understood meaning in electronics.

    Google the term.

    What that IC has is a ** heatsink pad** .

  6. These things can be notoriously hard to find.
    I've found it's most commonly asterisked in the package data at the
    end of the datasheet, but have found it scattered all over the place,
    or in some cases not at all.

    ** Cut the Royal Plural stuff - you arrogant FUCKHEAD


    ** So fucking what ???


    ** So fucking what ?

    Ambiguity = error.

    The term " thermal pad " has a well understood meaning in electronics.

    So one ought not use it to mean something else.

    FUCKWIT !!!

  8. Not much consistency, except that I didn't find "heatsink pad" once in
    my brief search.



    ST: "Thermal Pad" (page 1) and "exposed pad" (page 3)

    National: "Exposed Pad" and "EP"

    Linear Technology: "Exposed Pad"

    Analog Devices: "Exposed Pad".

    TI: "Exposed Thermal Pad" (and "Exposed Metalized Feature" for the
    doohickeys on the sides of the "Exposed Thermal Pad").

    TI (Burr Brown): "Exposed Thermal Pad"

    Silicon Laboratories: "ePad" for device and "thermal pad land" for
    PCB.

    ** That is a fucking LIE !!!!!

    All the hits on Google ( that relate to electronics ) have the same meaning
    for " thermal pad ".

    Ambiguity = ERROR !!!!

    The term " thermal pad " has a long and well understood meaning in
    electronics.

    So one ought not use it to mean something else.

    YOU FUCKING WOG MORON !!!





    ...... Phil
     
  10. um... well whippdy fucking do.. Do you realize that is what they used on the
    datasheet? Of course I doubt you care cause you just gotta get attention. If
    you wanna bitch call up ST.

    "Jon Slaughter Stand Up FUCKWIT TROLL "

    ** So FUCKING WHAT ??

    But that is strictly within the CONTEXT of a that datasheet !!!!


    Ambiguity is ALWAY error.

    The term " thermal pad " has a well understood meaning in electronics.

    So one ought not use it to mean something else.

    FUCKWIT !!!



    ....... Phil
     
  12. And Jon only used it within the context of that datasheet.
    In your rabid rage you seem to have missed this entirely.
    So amaze us all by citing this definitive reference Phil.
    Better go tell all those semi manufacturers they are using the wrong
    term.

    Dave.
     
  13. Yes and no.
    Sure, as does the term "sanitary pad".
    Point taken, but, as the snipped bit indicated, your suggestion
    (although certainly not original) is not a very popular one among IC
    manufacturers.
    Love you too.

    ** WRONG !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    He used it * totally out of context * on this NG in his heading and his
    text.


    Now go back to trolling school dunnies -

    you FUCKWIT pile of sub human ASD fucked runny shit.

  16. It was definitely not anywhere in one part I used a few years ago.
    Even in the fine print. After playing phone tage for days I got the
    answer.
     
  17. You seriously need some medication.
     
  18. Here's one that depends on misdirection and surprise rather than
    ambiguity. As a consequence, it should be translatable to other
    languages and cultures (stolen from another newsgroup)

    -- 
    A woman was standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror.
    She was not happy with what she saw and said to her husband, "I feel
    horrible; I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you to pay me a
    compliment." 
     
    The husband replies, "Your eyesight's damned near perfect."

  19. That's the wrong kind of silicon!
