Even the "C" grade of the Si570 will go to 200+ MHz. The 74AC74 will
toggle well over 100 MHz. It must be something else in the circuit or
how the 74AC74 is hooked up. Are you running the 74AC74 on 3.3V or 5V.
It will toggle faster at 5V. You didn't by chance get a 74HC74?

- Hi Dave,
Yes,I apply 5V to 74AC74.
I measure the waveform from Si570 and the output level decrease
from about 80MHz (3V-pp).
Other problem does not seen yet.
