AD7859 Full Self-Calibration

Question asked by mish on Apr 7, 2014

I am having an issue getting the AD7859 to consistently perform a full self-calibration.

AVDD and DVDD are at 5V with a stable external 5V reference.

My clock is running at about 3.75MHz.

I do not see any activity on the CS.

 

About 1 out of every 25 times, when I pull the /CAL pin low for 10us and then release it back to 5V I do not see the BUSY line go high.

Because of this when my software goes to perform its first conversion, the chip does a calibration and my conversion fails.

 

Is there any documentation of using the /CAL pin to perform the full self-calibration as the datasheet only full explains using the /CONVST pin?

What are the potential reasons the full self-calibration did not start when the /CAL pin was taken from low to high?
