S32K144 VCC short to GND after power on

Hello,

I designed a minimum system with S32K144, please see the schematic in the attachment. And then I made a pcb and solder the components.

When I power on the board with a DC power source which outputs a 7V voltage to the LDO on the board, an short circuit occured. After some measurement with multi-meter, I found VCC is short to GND. So I take the MCU off the board and there is no short circuit.

It is obvious that the MCU is internally short-circuited. What's wrong with the schematic? How to get rid of the problem? Can anyone help?

Hi ZZD,

I did not find out error in your schematic.
Please check the PCB file and measure the pads on board.
For example:
pin 7\8\9\41 connect to 5VDC
pin 10\40 connect to GND

If you doubt that the MCU is internally short-circuited, you can measure pads of MCU before solder it on PCB board.

Please check if the MCU is place correctly with PCB pads.

I am not quite sure if this MCU has exposed pad (EP) at bottom. If so:
The bottom of the package provides the primary heat removal path, as well as excellent electrical grounding to the PCB through an exposed pad (EP).

Best Regards,
Robin

Hi Robin,

Thank you for your suggestion.

I have made a new pcb and solely solder the power supply pins of the mcu. I have also put a zener diode at the output of the LDO. It works. There is no short circuit any more. The circuit draws about 20mA with no software flashed.

I will try to program the mcu at the next step.
