ADUM3223 blanking high side for 200uS periodically

I am using the ADUM3223 with EPC2012C devices switching at 1MHz.

When rising input voltage of the converter leg above around 13V, the high side driver blanks the output for 200us periodically ( period of kHz). Output pulses are down from 5.0 to around 0. something volts , causing the mosfet to not turn on and the inverter to fail.

I populated another board, and after some OK running time the ADUM failed in similar manner. 

But in open loop tests, i have kept the system running OK for days. 


Any idea about any protection / issue which might occurr ? or failure mode of the device?
