Problem in using PLL

Hi,I am using this chip Cdcs502 from Ti.I am running a 27Mhz crystal and connecting Capacitor load of 35pF ,with FS=0,the output is a clock pulse with 0.8 low and 2.1 high,i think this is fine.But the problem is when i do FS=1,the frequency gets 108Mhz but the amplitude becomes very low , the peak to peak amplitube is 800mV having a DC offset of 1.6 V...Kindly help me with this..] 

 

I need this 108Mhz signal to clock my EPM7064S. 

 

Kindly help!!

Sounds simply like a measurement artefact, either due to a slow oscilloscope or inappropiate probing.

well i have checked the oscilloscope and probing method...i dnt think anything wrong with these

According to the datasheet, CDCS502 has 32 ohm driver impedance. It should be able to drive regular capacitive loads. However I don't have the chip and check it's behaviour.

This is far from keeping LVCMOS level specification. Sounds like you connected a heavy resistive load to output, you should operate it basically unloaded.

I am operating it no load at all except i see the out on oscilliscope....so still cant figure out the problem
