AD7606-6 conversion result

Dear All,

I'm using the board Eval-ad7606-6EDZ to acquire analog signal, this is connect with a dsPIC33 by using the serial interface.

I need an input range of +-5V.



This is the connection of the pin

SER/!PAR -> Vdrive


REFSEL -> Vdrive

DoutA ->  dsPIC



!CS -> dsPIC


STBY -> Vdrive

OS0 -> GND

OS1 -> GND

OS2 -> GND


After power-up the dsPIC send a reset signal to the converter.

I have a problem with the conversion result. When the input voltage is larger than +-2.5V,  the most significant bit of the result goes high, thus the value change the sign. For example if the input is 3V, the conversion result is -2.

Moreover, I have try with the input range of +-10V, RANGE -> Vdrive. In this way the problem is when the input is larger than +-5V, thus the problem persist.  Whith the +-10V range I used 6553.6 as conversion factor.

Which is the possible problem?


Thank you for your consideration.

Best regards.
