AD5422 Power Sequencing?

i currently have an evaluation board of the AD5422, and noticed that when i supply the AVdd first before the DVcc it only gives me an error of +/- 2mV(voltage output: 0-5V range) and when i supply DVcc first before AVdd it gives me an error of about 2V.

Based from my data that I got from the evaluation, it seems that need to power up the Analog first then the DVcc which was not mentioned on the ad5422 datasheet. I already checked whether there is something wrong with the data that the DAC is receiving and also the read back that the ADC is providing.

    I moved this question about the AD5422 to the Precision DACs Community.  Someone here should be able to assist you.

    Power Supply Sequencing has been tested on this part and has shown no issues.  I've also re-tried your conditions here and seen no issues. 

    It appears that you are changing the output range of the part from 0 - 5V to 0 - 10V at some point too.

    Can you send me a list of the commands you are sending to the part.  Also can you downloaded SW version 1.2 from the AD5422 webpage so that we are on the same version. 

    I can share my screen with you at a convenient time to go through.
