Sample Delay in AD5542A

Category: Datasheet/Specs
Product Number: AD5542A

We are using an AD5542A with the LDAC pin tied to GND. 

When we send a new value to the DAC, it does not appear in the output of the device immediately. The new value appears on the output when the next value is sent, so it generates a one-sample delay.

It seems that the value is transferred to the "16-BIT DAC LATCH" register but not directly to the "16-BIT DAC" register, and when a new value is received, the old value is transferred to the "16-BIT DAC" register.

Is this the normal operation of the device and how can this delay be eliminated?
