Oracle SPARC Architecture 2011
SPARC has been a multiple vendor central processor unit standard for decades. It is owned by SPARC International, Inc. CPU architectures, such as SPARC, go through various revisions over time. Oracle is in the process of releasing the 2011 Architecture update for SPARC.
With the release of the Oracle T4 processor, there was a unified specification, which encapsulates all previous SPARC releases. Darrel Grove, a senior principal software engineer in the Solaris Studio team at Oracle, had posted an updated PDF to the Oracle SPARC Architecture 2011 in his blog at the end of August 2011.
