Description

Fromm University Video Communications' catalog:

"Wayne Rosing opens the presentation with a background of the business environment during the development and introduction of SPARC. David Patterson continues with a technical discussion of the principles of RISC design and interesting features of SPARC architecture, closing with a historical perspective and thoughts on future directions. He shows us three SPARC boards running at three clock rates which progressively take much more power and board area."
