Great news Daniel!

I still didn't get a reply of my contact, maybe he is on holiday or on
a business trip, or something else.
But i still have a business card of a second contact at AMS which i
think is more technical involved with the chip production/usage.

If we have still have open questions which are regarded to the chip
and not answered by the data sheet i can try to contact the person.
