(Thanks for the reply)

Yes, as noted in the OP. Also tried 1000 - no change. The only
thing that works is in the post you replied to. Sometime over the
weekend I'll make a couple of PCBs with different layouts and
also see if the problem exists at frequencies other than 50MHz.
I have to get to the bottom of this before I can move on to other

I can't comment as I don't see that parameter in the data.However,
the phenomenon still doesn't make sense to me. It's <spock> highly
illogical </spock>

2" PCB traces (32mil) to a header connector. Either a 5mA resistive
load, no load or CMOS gate inputs. Any SX o/p pin is rated to drive
45mA, so I don't think that's the problem

I'm not even sure what behaviour this is
