+
+DPAA Overview
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+Reference: `FSL DPAA Architecture <http://www.nxp.com/assets/documents/data/en/white-papers/QORIQDPAAWP.pdf>`_.
+
+The QorIQ Data Path Acceleration Architecture (DPAA) is a set of hardware
+components on specific QorIQ series multicore processors. This architecture
+provides the infrastructure to support simplified sharing of networking
+interfaces and accelerators by multiple CPU cores, and the accelerators
+themselves.
+
+DPAA includes:
+
+- Cores
+- Network and packet I/O
+- Hardware offload accelerators
+- Infrastructure required to facilitate flow of packets between the components above
+
+Infrastructure components are:
+
+- The Queue Manager (QMan) is a hardware accelerator that manages frame queues.
+  It allows  CPUs and other accelerators connected to the SoC datapath to
+  enqueue and dequeue ethernet frames, thus providing the infrastructure for
+  data exchange among CPUs and datapath accelerators.
+- The Buffer Manager (BMan) is a hardware buffer pool management block that
+  allows software and accelerators on the datapath to acquire and release
+  buffers in order to build frames.
+
+Hardware accelerators are:
+
+- SEC - Cryptographic accelerator
+- PME - Pattern matching engine
+
+The Network and packet I/O component:
+
+- The Frame Manager (FMan) is a key component in the DPAA and makes use of the
+  DPAA infrastructure (QMan and BMan). FMan  is responsible for packet
+  distribution and policing. Each frame can be parsed, classified and results
+  may be attached to the frame. This meta data can be used to select
+  particular QMan queue, which the packet is forwarded to.
+
+
+DPAA DPDK - Poll Mode Driver Overview
+-------------------------------------
+
+This section provides an overview of the drivers for DPAA:
+
+* Bus driver and associated "DPAA infrastructure" drivers
+* Functional object drivers (such as Ethernet).
+
+Brief description of each driver is provided in layout below as well as
+in the following sections.

+In the above representation, solid lines represent components which interface
+with DPDK RTE Framework and dotted lines represent DPAA internal components.
+
+DPAA Bus driver
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+The DPAA bus driver is a ``rte_bus`` driver which scans the platform like bus.
+Key functions include:
+
+- Scanning and parsing the various objects and adding them to their respective
+  device list.
+- Performing probe for available drivers against each scanned device
+- Creating necessary ethernet instance before passing control to the PMD
+
+DPAA NIC Driver (PMD)
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+DPAA PMD is traditional DPDK PMD which provides necessary interface between
+RTE framework and DPAA internal components/drivers.
+
+- Once devices have been identified by DPAA Bus, each device is associated
+  with the PMD
+- PMD is responsible for implementing necessary glue layer between RTE APIs
+  and lower level QMan and FMan blocks.
+  The Ethernet driver is bound to a FMAN port and implements the interfaces
+  needed to connect the DPAA network interface to the network stack.
+  Each FMAN Port corresponds to a DPDK network interface.
+
+
+Features
+^^^^^^^^
+
+  Features of the DPAA PMD are:
+
+  - Multiple queues for TX and RX
+  - Receive Side Scaling (RSS)
+  - Packet type information
+  - Checksum offload
+  - Promiscuous mode
+
+DPAA Mempool Driver
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+DPAA has a hardware offloaded buffer pool manager, called BMan, or Buffer
+Manager.
+
+- Using standard Mempools operations RTE API, the mempool driver interfaces
+  with RTE to service each mempool creation, deletion, buffer allocation and
+  deallocation requests.
+- Each FMAN instance has a BMan pool attached to it during initialization.
+  Each Tx frame can be automatically released by hardware, if allocated from
+  this pool.
+
+
+Supported DPAA SoCs
+-------------------
+
+- LS1043A/LS1023A
+- LS1046A/LS1026A
+
+Prerequisites
+-------------
+
+There are three main pre-requisities for executing DPAA PMD on a DPAA
+compatible board:
+
+1. **ARM 64 Tool Chain**
+
+   For example, the `*aarch64* Linaro Toolchain <https://releases.linaro.org/components/toolchain/binaries/4.9-2017.01/aarch64-linux-gnu>`_.
+
+2. **Linux Kernel**
+
+   It can be obtained from `NXP's Github hosting <https://github.com/qoriq-open-source/linux>`_.
+
+3. **Rootfile system**
+
+   Any *aarch64* supporting filesystem can be used. For example,
+   Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily) or 16.04 LTS (Xenial) userland which can be obtained
+   from `here <http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-base/releases/16.04/release/ubuntu-base-16.04.1-base-arm64.tar.gz>`_.
+
+As an alternative method, DPAA PMD can also be executed using images provided
+as part of SDK from NXP. The SDK includes all the above prerequisites necessary
+to bring up a DPAA board.
+
+The following dependencies are not part of DPDK and must be installed
+separately:
+
+- **NXP Linux SDK**
+
+  NXP Linux software development kit (SDK) includes support for family
+  of QorIQ® ARM-Architecture-based system on chip (SoC) processors
+  and corresponding boards.
+
+  It includes the Linux board support packages (BSPs) for NXP SoCs,
+  a fully operational tool chain, kernel and board specific modules.
+
+  SDK and related information can be obtained from:  `NXP QorIQ SDK  <http://www.nxp.com/products/software-and-tools/run-time-software/linux-sdk/linux-sdk-for-qoriq-processors:SDKLINUX>`_.
+
+- **DPDK Extra Scripts**
+
+  DPAA based resources can be configured easily with the help of ready scripts
+  as provided in the DPDK Extra repository.
+
+  `DPDK Extras Scripts <https://github.com/qoriq-open-source/dpdk-extras>`_.
+
+Currently supported by DPDK:
+
+- NXP SDK **2.0+**.
+- Supported architectures:  **arm64 LE**.
+
+- Follow the DPDK :ref:`Getting Started Guide for Linux <linux_gsg>`
+  to setup the basic DPDK environment.
+
+.. note::
+
+   Some part of dpaa bus code (qbman and fman - library) routines are
+   dual licensed (BSD & GPLv2).
+
+Pre-Installation Configuration
+------------------------------
+
+Config File Options
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+The following options can be modified in the ``config`` file.
+Please note that enabling debugging options may affect system performance.
+
+- ``CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_DPAA_BUS`` (default ``n``)
+
+  By default it is enabled only for defconfig_arm64-dpaa-* config.
+  Toggle compilation of the ``librte_bus_dpaa`` driver.
+
+- ``CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_DPAA_PMD`` (default ``n``)
+
+  By default it is enabled only for defconfig_arm64-dpaa-* config.
+  Toggle compilation of the ``librte_pmd_dpaa`` driver.
+
+- ``CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_DPAA_DEBUG_DRIVER`` (default ``n``)
+
+  Toggle display of generic debugging messages
+
+- ``CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_DPAA_DEBUG_INIT`` (default ``n``)
+
+  Toggle display of initialization related messages.
+
+- ``CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_DPAA_DEBUG_RX`` (default ``n``)
+
+  Toggle display of receive fast path run-time message
+
+- ``CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_DPAA_DEBUG_TX`` (default ``n``)
+
+  Toggle display of transmit fast path run-time message
+
+- ``CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_DPAA_DEBUG_TX_FREE`` (default ``n``)
+
+  Toggle display of transmit fast path buffer free run-time message
+
+- ``CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_DPAA_DEBUG_DRIVER_DISPLAY`` (default ``n``)
+
+  Toggle display of each Tx/Rx frame contents (dump)
+
+- ``CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_DPAA_CHECKING`` (default ``n``)
+
+  Toggle lower level driver validations (asserts)
+
+- ``CONFIG_RTE_MBUF_DEFAULT_MEMPOOL_OPS`` (default ``dpaa``)
+
+  This is not a DPAA specific configuration - it is a generic RTE config.
+  For optimal performance and hardware utilization, it is expected that DPAA
+  Mempool driver is used for mempools. For that, this configuration needs to
+  enabled.
+
+Driver compilation and testing
+------------------------------
+
+Refer to the document :ref:`compiling and testing a PMD for a NIC <pmd_build_and_test>`
+for details.
+
+#. Running testpmd:
+
+   Follow instructions available in the document
+   :ref:`compiling and testing a PMD for a NIC <pmd_build_and_test>`
+   to run testpmd.
+
+   Example output:
+
+   .. code-block:: console
+
+      ./arm64-dpaa-linuxapp-gcc/testpmd -c 0xff -n 1 \
+        -- -i --portmask=0x3 --nb-cores=1 --no-flush-rx

+
+Limitations
+-----------
+
+Platform Requirement
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+DPAA drivers for DPDK can only work on NXP SoCs as listed in the
+``Supported DPAA SoCs``.
+
+Maximum packet length
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+The DPAA SoC family support a maximum of a 10240 jumbo frame. The value
+is fixed and cannot be changed. So, even when the ``rxmode.max_rx_pkt_len``
+member of ``struct rte_eth_conf`` is set to a value lower than 10240, frames
+up to 10240 bytes can still reach the host interface.
