    Footprint with exposed pad (PowerPAD)

    v.anisoveca

      I am using PADS Layout. I what to know how to make the fooprint of TPS51200 correctly. It has an exposed power pad. I have read that this pad should have vias connecting to GND. Do I need to add these vias as terminals in PCB Decal Editor during making the footprint or vias may be added during the routing the design. How exactly these vias should be added and connected to GND plane in PADS Layout software??

      Hope for your help!

      Thank you in advance!!
