    GaN HEMT - IGOT60R070D1 NC pad connection

    Hi,

    Is it ok to connect NC pads to either of Drain, Source terminals? In the layout, due to the NC pins being adjacent to the Drain pins, the drain copper pour is shaped weirdly and this limits the number of vias I can place on it.
    Connecting NC pads with Drain would give me a nice rectangular pour which will make routing easier and more vias can be added for higher current capability.
    Also, will connecting NC pads with Drain/Source cause emissions? Or affect the package working internally?

    The NC pads are not bonded internally to the die. You may connect the NC pins to the drain pins.

    It'll be extremely helpful and useful of you guys if you give a timely reply. Replying after 2 months doesn't even make sense and I don't think you really have to be in your office to reply
