    Hi
    I need to know that the output of MAX2606 is a digital or analog output?

    If the output is analog, How can I use it for a digital phase locked loop?

    Thanks in advance.

    I would say it's analog. Basically, it looks like a sinusoidal output with harmonic distortion perhaps in the 5% to 10% range.

    I suppose you can try to make a square wave with a high speed comparator and suitable hysteresis, but this is not trivial in this frequency range.
