I have some experience with highfrequency circuit analysys. However I am a newbie in PCB design. I am analysing this circuit: http://www.ti.com/lit/ug/spmu365b/spmu365b.pdf (starts on page 36) and regularly see things like "OMIT" for headerpins or components like resistors or so.
p41 (6/6): the boxheader(?) on the left.
P40 (5/6): R48 on the dev board are two small surfaces with some soldering on it but no component apparently. I can hardly see myself (de)soldering resistors on my new dev board...
Why is this being mentionned? What do the people who made the PCB mean by this?
I mean if this part has to be omitted, why did they even place it on the PCB?
