SI4688 EPAD conection.

[ Edited ]

Hi. What is a purpose of EPAD in SI4688 radio receiver? If I don't connect it to GND will the device work?
I have a problem in my device with loading image from host and i realized that i do not put pasta on EPAD. Could it be reason of malfunction?

Thanking you in advance,

Marcin.

This central pad definitely needs to be connected to GND in order for the chip to work properly.

My problem was on software side. I had automatic "chip select" "on" on my raspberry. So, I think device will work without this pad connected, but of coure not too well.
