In the datasheet of the component I have to use, I encountered the term 'DNI' as you can see in the picture above. And I don't know the meaning of it and what to do with it. I made a search with 'how to make dni schematic' in google and most logical explanation was that it means 'Do not install'.

Is it true? If it is true can you explain in more detail? Thanks.

edit: I am also seing NI components:

I do not know what they are either.

DNI or DNP are optional parts.

DNI stands for Do Not Install (electronic circuit board parts bill of materials & schematics for )


Sometimes used for suppressing parasitics.

Sometimes layout for spare parts not installed, NI

Thanks for the answer. So I will draw them on layout but not solder those components. Only if I have to, I will. So this is a precaution, I can solder some passive components empirically?
