Intel® QuickAssist Technology Accelerator Abstraction Layer (AAL)

Cover
General-purpose computers allow programmers to implement almost any algorithm in software. However, even with today's fastest multi-core processors, there are still many algorithms that cannot execute fast enough to meet some customer requirements. One way to satisfy these conflicting requirements is to use FPGA-based accelerators.

This white paper presents an overview of FPGA Accelerator technology and the Intel® QuickAssist Technology Accelerator Abstraction Layer (AAL). Learn about:

  • AAL object modeling & interfaces
  • Creating an AFU instance
  • Executing an accelerated function
  • Advantages of implementing a common framework like AAL
  • Accessing any number of acceleration technologies without requiring alteration
