Comments

The WSON package has a exposed thermal pad on the underside. However, it is not normally electrically connected to anything, and is optionally soldered to the PCB. It is recommended to be soldered when the PCB has a large amount of flex, else left unconnected.

Below is an “odd shaped” SON package used by Numonyx flash chips that goes under the name VDFPN8. Notice the half-round appearance of the pins.

Atmel produces a document titled PCB Design Considerations when Changing from 6-pin SOT23 to 6-pin WSON Atmel Products. It is a good read if you are migrating from larger SOT-23 packages to the smaller WSON package.

The DMB/PWSON Package (Texas Instruments)

The DMB package (also called PWSON) is a variant of the WSON package used by Texas Instruments. It has a pitch of 1mm. The HDC1080 datasheet is an example of a TI component which comes in the DMB package.

The DQD Package (Texas Instruments)

The DQD package is a variant of the WSON package used by Texas Instruments. The TPD8F003 datasheet is an example of a TI component which comes in the DQD package.
