+Intel(R) QuickAssist (QAT) Compression Poll Mode Driver
+=======================================================
+
+The QAT compression PMD provides poll mode compression & decompression driver
+support for the following hardware accelerator devices:
+
+* ``Intel QuickAssist Technology C62x``
+* ``Intel QuickAssist Technology C3xxx``
+
+
+Features
+--------
+
+QAT compression PMD has support for:
+
+Compression/Decompression algorithm:
+
+    * DEFLATE
+
+Huffman code type:
+
+    * FIXED
+
+Window size support:
+
+    * 32K
+
+Checksum generation:
+
+    * CRC32, Adler and combined checksum
+
+Limitations
+-----------
+
+* Chained mbufs are not yet supported, therefore max data size which can be passed to the PMD in a single mbuf is 64K - 1. If data is larger than this it will need to be split up and sent as multiple operations.
+
+* Compressdev level 0, no compression, is not supported.
+
+* Dynamic Huffman encoding is not yet supported.
+
+Installation
+------------
+
+The QAT compression PMD is built by default with a standard DPDK build.
+
+It depends on a QAT kernel driver, see :ref:`qat_kernel_installation`.

+Dependency on the QAT kernel driver
+-----------------------------------
+
+To use the QAT PMD an SRIOV-enabled QAT kernel driver is required. The VF
+devices created and initialised by this driver will be used by the QAT PMD.
+
+Instructions for installation are below, but first an explanation of the
+relationships between the PF/VF devices and the PMDs visible to
+DPDK applications.
+
+
+Acceleration services - cryptography and compression - are provided to DPDK
+applications via PMDs which register to implement the corresponding
+cryptodev and compressdev APIs.
+
+Each QuickAssist VF device can expose one cryptodev PMD and/or one compressdev PMD.
+These QAT PMDs share the same underlying device and pci-mgmt code, but are
+enumerated independently on their respective APIs and appear as independent
+devices to applications.
+
+.. Note::
+
+   Each VF can only be used by one DPDK process. It is not possible to share
+   the same VF across multiple processes, even if these processes are using
+   different acceleration services.
+
+   Conversely one DPDK process can use one or more QAT VFs and can expose both
+   cryptodev and compressdev instances on each of those VFs.
+
+
+
+Device and driver naming
+------------------------
+
+* The qat cryptodev driver name is "crypto_qat".
+  The rte_cryptodev_devices_get() returns the devices exposed by this driver.
+
+* Each qat crypto device has a unique name, in format
+  <pci bdf>_<service>, e.g. "0000:41:01.0_qat_sym".
+  This name can be passed to rte_cryptodev_get_dev_id() to get the device_id.
+
+.. Note::
+
+	The qat crypto driver name is passed to the dpdk-test-crypto-perf tool in the -devtype parameter.
+
+	The qat crypto device name is in the format of the slave parameter passed to the crypto scheduler.
+
+* The qat compressdev driver name is "comp_qat".
+  The rte_compressdev_devices_get() returns the devices exposed by this driver.
+
+* Each qat compression device has a unique name, in format
+  <pci bdf>_<service>, e.g. "0000:41:01.0_qat_comp".
+  This name can be passed to rte_compressdev_get_dev_id() to get the device_id.
+
+
+Available kernel drivers
+------------------------
+
+Kernel drivers for each device are listed in the following table. Scroll right
+to check that the driver and device supports the servic you require.
