Greetings
 
Usually the exposed pad for an IC is connected to ground. However in the datasheet for dsPIC33CK64MP105 FAMILY, I could not find any instruction regarding connections to exposed pad. Should I connect exposed pad to Ground or leave it floating?
 
Thanks and Regards

Hi,
If nothing is mentioned in the datasheet, it probably means it is floating.
You can either left it floating or connect it to GND. I guess most people connect it to GND...
The packages are also described here : https://www.microchip.com/en-us/support/package-drawings

I bet it's connected to VSS - grab a multimeter (do you know what's this?) and check.
