CAPI enablement products
CAPI solutions and accelerator IP
CAPI solutions refers to a customer application that uses an FPGA-based accelerator on top of the CAPI infrastructure. The accelerator, called by the application, provides performance enhancements, security, or other quality of service enhancements vs. a non-accelerated application. CAPI Solutions are available for purchase from the application vendor or IBM.
Accelerator IP refers to an algorithm that has been designed on an FPGA accelerator using the CAPI Infrastructure. The algorithm will have an API for applications to invoke the accelerated IP. Accelerated IP is available for ISV integration into their applications.
