If this was not an embedded design then would not this be non-PCI 2.1
compliant because of requirement 22.214.171.124 note 1): "...must work with any
clock frequency between nominal DC and 33 MHz...the clock frequency may be
changed at any time during operation of the system...the clock may be
stopped in a low state..." ?
No PLL can do that...
i.e. any non-embedded plug in (33MHz) board using a PLL for clock
regeneration is not PCI 2.1 compliant.
