ADT7320 RDY bit

I recently used the adt7320 digital thermometer but currently i'm
experiencing a strange behaviour of this product.


I set the operating mode to continuous conversion by setting bit 6 and bit 5
of the configuration register (0x01) to zero.

Before each temperature reading, performed @ ~1HZ, i verify that a new data is
available for the sensor looking at bit 7 (data not ready) of the STATUS
REGISTER (0x00).

I expect that for all readings the flag should be 0 as the sensor has a long
window to compute at least a new sample (1 second> 240ms) but frequently it is
not.


Do you consider this behaviour as normal or not?


Thank you for your help
