    I made thermocouple amplifier circuit with the analog devices AD8495.
    There is an application note that tells you how to configure the circuit (figure 6).
    I made the circuit exactly similar to the app note, however it is giving me incorrect data. The thermocouple sensor is working fine and it can be read by a handheld temperature reader.
    On the datasheet it says that if you short out and ground the thermocouple pins, you can read the internal temperature sensor. The goods news is I can do this and the data is accurate.
    However when I connect the K type thermocouple I get 4.95V out of the temperature amp which corresponds to above 900 degC.
    Please help in way to troubleshoot this circuit.
