The IBM Power S822LC for Big Data provides industry-leading performance, data throughput and virtualization with a flexible design to meet broad workload requirements. With the ability to meet diverse needs, the server is built on open standards and incorporates accelerators. This 2-socket, 2U POWER8 system was...

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....

The POWER Service Layer to Accelerator Functional Unit (PSL / AFU) interface communicates to the acceleration logic running on the FPGA. Through this interface, the PSL offers services to the AFU. The services offered are cache-line oriented and allow the AFU to make buffering versus...

BM’s CAPI technology provides a high-performance, coherent processor attach for computation-heavy algorithms on an FPGA. This innovation removes the overhead and complexity of the I/O subsystem, allowing an accelerator to operate as part of an application with a smaller programming investment.  The CAPI Developer Kit...

DESCRIPTION The Coherent Accelerator Processor Interface (CAPI) on IBM POWER8 systems is a new means for solution architects to gain system-level performance. CAPI connects a custom acceleration engine to the coherent fabric of the POWER8 chip. The hybrid solution has a simple programming paradigm while delivering...

Collection of hardware designs for the SP010 POWER8 reference platform.  This OpenPOWER Development Platform Workgroup Note provides the material used for the design of the Tyan SP010 development system as a reference for developers of OpenPOWER systems based on the IBM Power8TM chipset....
