Hi Support Team,
I'd like to use AD7380-4, AD7381-4, or AD7389-4 with a 3 V external reference. Please answer a couple of questions:
1. The datasheets of AD7380-4, AD7381-4 tell that an external reference can be connected to the REFIO pin (pin #17), and the REFSEL bit must be set in the control register. But the inner schematic indicates that the REFIO pin is connected to the buffer output directly, without any switching circuitry. The question is - can you confirm that an external reference can be safely connected to the REFIO pin without causing a conflict with the internal reference which is enabled at power-up? Is it enough to apply the external reference after a small delay after the ADC's power supplies? It is not necessary to set REFSEL = 1 before connecting external reference, correct?
2. It is my understanding that AD7389-4 cannot be used with an external reference. Is that correct?
Thanks in advance,
