 5.1. OpenPOWER Ready Criteria for CAPI Adapters

CAPI capable PCIe adapters must meet the criteria for OpenPOWER Ready I/O Adapters, as specified in Chapter 4, OpenPOWER Ready I/O Adapter above. In addition, CAPI adapters must support the following CAPI specific criteria:

  1. The adapter must support an IBM licensed Power Service Layer (PSL).

  2. The adapter should support a kernel and application API library which satisfies the Coherent Accelerator Interface Architecture (CAIA).


    The open source CAPI library libcxl may be used and assumed compliant with CAIA.
