Module ground/thermal pads

Postby WiFive » Sat Sep 09, 2017 5:51 am

The module datasheets say that soldering the ground/thermal pad on the bottom of the module is not recommended. What is recommended in terms of copper layer, soldermask, etc?

We're about to send a PCB off, so if we could get an official answer on this it would be really useful please? (I know you must be busy at Espressif). If not, could you share the reasoning for the data sheet saying not connecting it/pasting it -- so we can best design to ground (or not ground) it, thermal conduction etc.

Thanks
