AD7616

Hi, I'm just a beginner in ADC. I get through the basics theory of ADC's very well and have knowledge about it. I've to work on the AD7616, have to write code to take the output from ADC. The problem is I do not know how to get started with it. where I should start and what should I learn. I learned the basics of Verilog already. I do not know which parameters are important for coding and controlling the ADC. Kindly refer me to any tutorial or document so that I can get aware of it. I have already gone through the datasheet of ADC. I hope I'll get help from here. 

Thank you!
