The OpenPOWER CAPI 1.0 Accelerator Compliance: Test Specification provides the requirements for a test suite to demonstrate OpenPOWER CAPI 1.0 Accelerator compliance for POWER8™ systems. The input to this specification are the subject of this OpenPOWER CAPI 1.0 Accelerator Compliance: Test Specification document:

  1. OpenPOWER Power Service Layer (PSL) to Accelerator Function Unit (AFU) Interface Specification, Revision 1.0 which describes the interface to communicate to the acceleration logic running on the FPGA.
  2. OpenPOWER Coherent Accelerator Interface Architecture Version 1 (CAIA V1) Specification   which describes a coherent accelerator interface structure for coherently attaching accelerators to the POWER8 systems using a standard PCIe bus.

 

The OpenPOWER CAPI 1.0 Accelerator Compliance: Test Specification is a Standards Track, Work Group Specification owned by the Compliance Workgroup and handled in compliance with the requirements outlined in the OpenPOWER Foundation Work Group (WG) Process document.
