This paper describes how to port various pre-built application binaries used in BWAKIT into OpenPOWER architecture and execute the BWAKIT pipeline successfully.   Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology produces large volume of genome data, which gets processed using various open source Bioinformatics tools. The configuration and compilation...

This document provides requirements on a test implementation targeting the Application Binary Interface (ABI) for OpenPOWER. Currently, this test implementation is shipped with the gcc sources, and so forms part of the official gcc build and test process.   The OpenPOWER ELFv2 Application Binary Interface (ABI) Compliance...

The ABI (application binary interface) specification provides the definitions for the machine interface and inter-object interfaces for the little-endian POWER architecture.   This specification defines the OpenPOWER ELF V2 ABI which is derived from and represents the first major update to the Power ABI since the original...

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...

This document defines the Coherent Accelerator Interface Architecture (CAIA) for the IBM® POWER8® systems. The information contained in this document allows various CAIA-compliant accelerator implementations to meet the needs of a wide variety of systems and applications. Compatibility with the CAIA allows applications and system...
