The OpenCAPI Power Platform Architecture (OPPA) defines an accelerator interface structure for coherently attaching accelerators to the IBM Power Systems™ using an OpenCAPI Physical Link. The intent is to allow implementation of a wide range of accelerators to optimally address many different market segments. The...

The OpenPOWER Foundation documentation template provides a framework for OpenPOWER public and private documentation. The goal of this document is to promote community contributions to OpenPOWER documentation and to enable new contributions within a common look and feel.   The major sections of this document addresses the...

The document provides a detailed focus on the base design requirements of an FPGA-based accelerator card utilizing CAPI 2.0. The document is a dynamic document that will be enhanced over time. OpenPower members are invited to add information, ideas and approaches to the document. The...

The IBM® POWER9™ processor is a superscalar symmetric multiprocessor designed for use in servers and large-cluster systems. It uses 14 nm technology with 17 metal layers. The POWER9 processor supports direct-attach memory. It supports a maximum symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) size of two sockets and is...

This user's manual describes the IBM POWER8 processor single-chip module (SCM) features, facilities, components, and use. It provides information about the POWER8 processor from a programming model point of view, and is intended to be a companion to the Power Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) documentation....

This document provides errata against version 1.4 of the OpenPOWER ELF v2 Application Binary Interface Specification. These errata should be considered part of said specification until such time as a newer version of the full specification is published. This document is a Non-standard Track, Work Group...

The goal of this project is to provide functional equivalents of the Intel MMX, SSE, and AVX intrinsic functions, that are commonly used in Linux applications, and make them (or equivalents) available for the PowerPC64LE platform.   This document is a Work Group Note work product owned...

The purpose of the OpenPOWER FSI Compliance Test Harness and Test Suite (TH/TS) Specification is to provide the test suite requirements to be able to demonstrate OpenPOWER FSI compliance for POWER8™ and POWER9™ systems. The input to this specification is the following specification: Field Replaceable...

The purpose of the OpenPOWER CAPI 2.0 Accelerator Compliance: Test Specification is to provide the test suite requirements to demonstrate OpenPOWER CAPI 2.0 Accelerator solution compliance for POWER9™ systems. The input to this specification are the following specifications which define the hardware interfaces which are...
