  • Via on top of Pad

    Hello,

    Please find the snapshot from the PCB Board of one of the development boards available from TI attached.

    There is a VIA on top of a PAD. Is this acceptable to put Via on top of PAD like the way TI has done it

    Regards

    No, a standard will cause assembly reliability issues as the solder will go down the via. However, TI may have used it with filled or capped via's, but that adds cost.

      This is common for minimum inductance, we do it pretty frequently, though we do know it can cause issues if we aren't careful. If the chip is big enough we prefer to put the vias inside the pad dimensions rather than in the pad, but for smaller chips we can't do that. The flip side is you have to double the number of capacitors.
