Hello All,


we already started to use the AD7156 C to D convertor and the results are very good.

Working with the chip we saw the next:


1. The chip is in "Power-down mode" - configuration reg is: 0x13. When reading the "Status register" BIT7 is always "0". Why this bit is not "1" like it is writen in the data sheet?


2. We want to use "Single conversion" or "Continuous mode". Is it necessary the chip to be in "Idle" mode before to use  "Single conversion" or "Continuous mode", if the current state is "Power-down"?


Best regards
