Hello everyone.

Is Exposed Pad electrically isolated at MPC17529EJ or not?

Can I connect the pad to GND?

Hello Dimi,

The exposed pad should be connected to GND or left open (meaning not connected to any rail ... but thermal resistance will be higher). In general, connecting to GND is recommended.

Best regards,

Tomas
