Stability of the 280mV Internal signal

I'm currently working on a project involving the AD7779.


Channels 0-3 are used, 4-7 are disabled through CH_DISABLE register.

I'm using an external 2.5v Reference.


ODR is set to 0.5ksps


PGA Gain is set to 8 for every used channel, and the power mode is set to Hi-Resolution.


In the initialization sequence, I'm performing the offset adjustment then the gain adjustment using the internal 280mV differential signal.  Note that a digital reset is performed as per datasheet requests.


However, I see that this signal seems quite unstable, varying typically +/- 450 MSBs:


I couldn't find any clue about it's specifications / limitations.

Is this behavior expected for the 280mV p-p signal ?


Thank you very much!
