The unloaded characteristic impedance requirement for regular PCI add-in
cards is 60-100 ohms. I have seen proposed ECRs that would change this
to 51-100 ohms (only when Cin of the IC on the end of the trace is <=
8pF), and an older one that suggested 50-70 ohms.
For PCI-X add-in cards, the corresponding requirement is 57 ohms +/- 10%
(51.3-62.7 ohms). It extends lower than the PCI range for add-in cards,
but PCI-X also requires a smaller maximum device Cin.
