The Advanced Accelerator Adapter Electro-Mechanical Specification defines an electro-mechanical specification for advanced accelerator adapters within the OpenPOWER eco-system supported by IBM® POWER9™.  POWER9 modules present a 25Gbps interface organized into groups of 8 bit-lanes. Innovation within the community is encouraged for systems that support accelerated...

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...

The OpenPOWER Memory Bus Specification defines the OpenPOWER Memory Bus Architecture.  The architecture and spec are used to develop Memory Function Units(MFU) and to integration of those MFUs into the OpenPOWER system structure. An MFU is a logic block developed by a member of the...

The OpenPOWER ISA Compliance Definition defines the test suite requirements to demonstrate OpenPOWER ISA Profile compliance for POWER8 systems.   The input to this specification are the following specifications: OpenPOWER Specification: Power Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) – OpenPOWER Profile which describes the categories of the POWER ISA...

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: OpenPOWER Power...

The OpenPOWER Foundation set up the OpenPOWER Ready™ program in 2016.   Within the program, developers identify products for use by members of the OpenPOWER ecosystem.    The OpenPOWER Ready mark indicates that a product should work with other OpenPOWER Ready products.  Because of this the...

OpenPOWER Ready™ is a mark used by the OpenPOWER Foundation to enable OpenPOWER ecosystem product developers to indicate that a product has been shown / demonstrated to meet a minimum set of characteristics and should be interoperable with other OpenPOWER Ready products.  This document is...
