DPAA Information

I have a few questions regarding DPAA that I cannot seem to locate the answers to.

I have checked the DPAA Reference Manual, Rev 2. Is this the latest revision of this documentation?


What is the difference between DPAA versions?

DPAA vs DPAA2 but also DPAA v3, DPAA v4, etc within DPAA.


What protocols can DPAA accelerate?

This DPAA Deep Dive Presentation: 

on slide 55 (Security Block – Version 5.0) lists protocols supported by the security block.

Is there another resource where similar/more information can be found?


Is the DPAA software interface based upon a standard?

It is my understanding that DPAA2 has kernel level and userspace drivers/libraries in standard C that expose an API for programming.

What is the equivalent for DPAA if there is one?

Where can this documentation be found?


What accounts for the Forward Performance difference between the P and T series processors?

Presumably the addition of DPAA but I cannot find this explicitly stated anywhere.


Thank you for the support!
