AD8295 to AD7690 Reference Design Problem

I recently built the reference design included with the AD8295 datasheet, which uses the AD8295 to differentially drive an AD7690 ADC chip.  This is a very compact implementation but I can't seem to get it to work correctly.

That said, I notice that the evaluation board for the AD8295, EVAL-CN0225, implements a different approach using an AD8275 to generate the differential signal driving an AD7687. I'm not able to find any confirming implementations for the AD8295/AD7690 combination but I haven't seen any web references suggesting that the design has any problem or needs additional components.

I have attached my schematic of the amplifier section.  I have four of these channels in a compact area that is space constrained.

Can anyone comment on this in general?  I can be more specific later.

  • I am trying to understand why the eval board (EVAL-CN0225) for the AD8295 uses an additional level translator,AD8275, instead of the more compact circuit shown in the datasheet for driving a differential ADC, such as the AD7690.

    Perhaps there is a technical reason related to driving the AD7687?

    So my question above is focused on that rather than specific problems with my circuit.  Is there an example of a complete PCB implementation that uses the reference design shown as Fig. 71 of the data sheet?  Am in the process of detailing any discrepancies in voltages on my board and am curious.
