DRV8412 Thermal Via Design Recommendation

Thermal pad of the DRV8412 is attached at bottom of device to improve the thermal capability of the device. The thermal pad has to be soldered with a very good coverage on PCB in order to deliver the power specified in the datasheet. The figure below shows the recommended thermal via and land pattern design for the DRV8412. For additional information, see TI application report, PowerPad Made Easy (SLMA004) and PowerPad Layout Guidelines (SOLA120).
