An OPAE compliant AFU configures the OPAE Platform using a platform configuration file to specify the following to the PIM:
  • Specify the AFU’s UUID
  • Request a top-level interface
  • Extend a top-level interface with additional device interfaces
  • Request pipelining on device interfaces
  • Request clock crossing on device interfaces
  • Specify a requested device interface as optional
  • Specify AFU user clock timing
The platform configuration file uses the JSON format to specify the above tasks with key:value pairs.
