    1212-8 Dual footprint from Vishay Siliconix


      What is the best way to create the extra square pad that connects pins  5-6 and 7-8 respectively in the decal?


      The part number of the MOSFET I am using that requires this decal is the Si7216DN from Vishay.


      I know how to create the extra copper shape, solder mask, and paste mask, but what is the best way to get the two pins and the other copper connected so that layout and router see them as fully connected so I don't have to route traces between the 3 shapes?


      Attached is the data sheet.
