Thanks for pointing this out, we looked at both when developing the board and whichever of us wrote the specification page obviously got confused and listed the 14bit version by mistake.

No problem. Fortunately the basics of the chip are quite similar.I didn't spot it until I started getting the wrong answer from the 'whoami' register. Does beg the question though, what was the reasoning for preferring one over the other?
