I'll look up the name of the book I have at home; this is the best book for the PCI
design I ever saw and I used it in my design.
The PCI bus is fairly tolerant at 33MHz. I stretched it for almost 18 inches with
one north bridge and it worked reliably, though it was a necessity. If you can use a
"slave" bridge to cut the bus in half (again, if your bus becomes very long) - do
The layout is simple - fairly uniform bus, no stubs; de-scewed clock, for which I
personally would recommend Cypress Robo-Clock drivers.
Advise: do put a test header for a digital analyzer on all PCI signals; PCI protocol
is fascinating and sometimes without analyzer you won't get far.
