Santa Clara, Calif.--May 26, 1999--Intel Corp. (Santa Clara) and Hewlett-Packard Co. (Palo Alto, Calif.) published the details of the IA-64 Instruction Set Architecture (ISA). This disclosure enables software developers from around the world to accelerate the development of the next generation of server and workstation applications based on forthcoming IA-64 processors, beginning with Merced in 2000.
Released today on the Intel and HP websites, the IA-64 Application Instruction Set Architecture Guide (AIG) details the application instruction set, architecture features, and programming model for IA-64 processors.
The release of the IA-64 architecture information is the result of the research and development effort between Intel and HP announced in 1994. The alliance is aimed at developing a 64-bit instruction set architecture for advanced workstation, server, and enterprise-computing systems that protects customer software investments through compatibility with Intel's IA-32 processors and HP's PA-RISC processors.
The complete IA-64 AIG is can be downloaded from the Intel and HP websites at http://developer.intel.com/design/ia64/index.htm and http://www.hp.com/go/ia-64.
