Hi , I am using AD5421 for HART pressure transmitter.I connected the AD5421 to HART modem AD5700, microcontroller and 24bit ADC. When i connect the SCLK pin (SPI bus) of AD5421 to  microcontroller  SPI SCLK pin, the current consumption at loop input goes from 4 mA to 19mA. I do not getting understand how it is working and how to avoid this situation for my loop powered transmitter.Could any found this issue or any one can help me?
