AD5791 Eval board: voltage output doesn't change

Dear Community,


I'm trying to evaluate AD5791 on the ADI evaluation board EVAL-AD5791SDZ.


I use following settings:


- power supply: VCC=+5V / VDD=+12V / VSS=-12V

- external reference VREF=+5V (so DAC output range is +/-10V)

- serial communication with an external SPI generator (frequency 1MHz)

- LDAC is tied low (jumper LK4 inserted)



Communication with DAC is correct because I can change Control register value (example bit DACTRI) and I see change on DAC output.


After board power-up, I send value 0x200012 to Control Register to disable DACTRI and OPGND. DAC output voltage is now at VREFN (-10V in my case).


But the problem is when I try to change the DAC value (code 0x1000FF by example), the output voltage remains still to VREFN. I have also try to use other code but the output doesn't change. Is there any other configuration that I missed?


Thanks for your help.
