Offers support for a wide range of products for the RISC System/6000product line and AIX operating system, including Uni-processor (UP) andSymmetric Multiple Processor (SMP) systems. Provides important informationfor building many system features such as memory controllers with cachesand bus-to-bus bridges. RISC System/ 6000 PowerPC System Architecturedefines an architecture that allows each operating system--in particular,the AIX operating system--to run unchanged on all systems that comply withthis architecture. It provides a consistent software interface across abroad range of system implementations and offers all hardware/softwaredependencies necessary for a successful system identification,configuration and performance tuning process.
An important reference for all programmers and product developmentengineers who are developing software and hardware products for theRISC/System 6000 PowerPC systems. Also useful for system programmersinvolved in operating system design, system integrators building productsand parts for the system family, and anyone interested in porting otheroperating systems to the RISC System/6000 family.
