[AD7793] Single thermistor cold-junction compensation for multiple 7793s?

Is it feasible to use a single thermistor for ambient compensation into two separate 7793s?


Configuration would be: IOUT2 connects from one of the 7793s to the thermocouple, while AIN2(+), AIN2(-), REFIN(+), and REFIN(-) are paralleled between each 7793 to the thermistor and reference resistor.


Has anyone tried such an arrangement, and would the parallel loading on the AIN/REFIN pins cause additional measurable offset in the measurements?
