What's up Docs?

Let us go then you and I, to a time when SuperSPARCs filled Sun boxes or when the Sun-4m architecture dominated our systems.  Back to a time when the word "browser" meant someone who looks but doesn't buy and no one had heard of Google or Yahoo or Brittney Spears.

The documents below will help you take that trip back to those wonder years.

Since I last posted about the opendocs project's progress the following have been added to the wiki:
 

SuperSPARC I CPU (Viking) and Multicache controler Manual

SuperSPARC II CPU (Voyager) Manual

Sun-4M System Architecture (revision 2.0) by Chuck Narad Manual

Sun Ethernet, Parallel & SCSI ASIC (Macio aka NCR89c100)\* Manual

Sun external serial port ASIC chip (Slavio aka NCR89c105)\* Manual

MicroSPARC-IIep (STP1100) Manual

MicroSPARC-IIep (STP1100) Datasheet

\*Part of the Sun4M architecture. Macio & Slavio were co-developed by Sun and the now defunct NCR microelectronics (NCR micro eventually became a part of LSI logic.)

This time around I want to give a special shout out to Greg Onufer who recently joined the opendocs team but has been extremely helpful in not only locating these dusty tomes but also getting them ready so that they can posted to the public.

Greg, this Bud's for you!

Pau for now...
 

 

About

I look after Sun's relationships with the various GNU/Linux communities as well as our relationship with the FSF. Last year, my family and I emigrated from Silicon Valley to Austin, TX.
