KV58 RMII_REF_CLK source

The RMII interfaces requires 50Mhz clock source, we use a PHY which provides this.


The reference manual says the RMII clock source can be EXTAL clock or ENET_1588_CLKIN selected via SIM_SOPT2[RMIISRC]  (page 172), so we have routed the PHY clock source to the EXTAL pin and configured SIM_SOPT2 to use EXTAL as a source.


However datasheet section Oscillator frequency specifications states fec_extal Input clock frequency (external clock mode) to be 48Mhz max.


So can a 50Mhz clock source be fed into EXTAL input, or is ENET_1588_CLKIN the only valid RMII clock source?


Many thanks,
