DDS AD9959 Phase Offset between 4-channels

I have two DDS AD9959.

I did experiment for synchronization of each DDS 4-channels using 'manual I/O update' button in supplied software.

The result is follow.

1. DDS1                                                                                      2. DDS2

                 Figure 1. DDS1 synchronization                                       Figure 2. DDS2 synchronization


In the figure 1, the channel 2 signal has amplitude offset and phase offset. 

The phase offset is about 7 degree.

I experimented again, however the amplitude/phase offset is almost constant.


I could't find the range of amplitude/phase offset in the datasheet when the 4-channel output is synchronized.

I wonder if the amplitude/phase offset above figure is reasonable.


And, I want perfect synchronization of 4-channels that meas the amplitude and phase of all channels are same.

Could you tell me how to synchronize without phase offset?

I'm thinking about whether I should use a phase detector.


Thank you for reading.
