• NC Pins in Integrated Circuits

    October 5, 2020 The SnapEDA Team

    What are the uses of an NC pin?  1. Device groundingThe NC pin can be connected to ground to improve thermal capacity or heat dissipation (if the option is applicable for the device as stated in the datasheet).  2. Component testingAn NC pin, by default, should be left unconnected or floating because most of the…

  • Schematic Symbols for Integrated Circuits

    July 20, 2020 The SnapEDA Team

    Pin naming, pin setting, and pin arrangement are the 3 most important factors to consider when creating the schematic symbol for an IC device. Considering these aspects will help you create a direct and functional design. At SnapEDA, we developed our own internal standards based on these 3 factors.  PIN NAMING To avoid incorrect pin…
