    • "This directory reflects IAL technologies, and our contributions to other specifications, standards and products."
  • The Personal Computer Chiplist (Aad Offerman)
    • "Since there are a lot of questions about the differences between the various chips used in the IBM PC, IBM PC/XT, IBM PC/AT, IBM PS/2 and compatibles, this list, containing their CPUs and NPXs, has been compiled for the benefit of the net community"
  • PowerPC FAQ
    • PowerPC is a microprocessor designed to meet a standard which was jointly designed by Motorola, IBM, and Apple. The PowerPC standard specifies a common instruction set architecture (ISA), allowing anyone to design and fabricate PowerPC processors, which will run the same code. The PowerPC architecture is based on the IBM POWER architecture, used in IBM's RS/6000 workstations. Currently IBM and Motorola are working on PowerPC chips. The PowerPC architecture specifies both 32-bit and 64-bit data paths. Early implementations will be 32-bit; future higher-performance implementations will be 64-bit. A PowerPC has 32 general purpose (integer) registers (32- or 64-bit) and 32 floating point (IEEE standard 64-bit) registers.
