I'll need some additional information to help diagnose the issue here.
1. The TMCS1101B us designed such that the output in a no load condition should be 2.5V. Do you know why your no load condition is 2.4V, or about 100 mV lower than this value. This seems odd, and makes me wonder if there is something off on the output node. Can you share what else is being interfaced to ground here? You mention you are digitizing this information, but I don't see any ADC connections off the load. Can I assume you are feeding this line into an ADC directly in a single ended configuration?
2. Can you share the ADC information (resolution, sampling rate, device, etc.) here?
Is it possible to decouple the ADC from the TMCS1100 and see if this alleviates the offset and settling issue (cut trace on a board, desolder the MCU, etc.)? I am unfamiliar with this MCU, but I hypothesize what may be happening is due to loading effects and the inability to settle at a sampling rate this high. The BW of the TMCS1101 is only 80kHz, and to successfully drive an ADC at 150ksps, typically a buffer may need to be considered to ensure proper drive to within 1/2LSB. The period here is 6.67us, and the conversion period is going to eat a portion of this. What is your ADC clock speed, as the conversion time will be 35* this number. Subtracting the resulting time value should give you the acquisition time of the device.
Also, have you examined the TMCS1101 on a scope as the ADC is sampling to examine droop effects and resettling per sample?
