This book presents specifications and standards for the Apple Macintosh technology cited in the PowerPC Microprocessor Common Hardware Reference Platform (CHRP) specification.
The CHRP specification is a joint publication of Apple Computer, Inc., International Business Machines Corporation, and Motorola, Inc. It defines a common hardware architecture for computers that use the PowerPC microprocessor. For information about obtaining the CHRP specification, see the bibliography, page 209.
All of the Macintosh technology incorporated in the CHRP specification is currently used in Power Macintosh computers. This book defines that technology so that third-party vendors can design and build computers containing the required Macintosh features. By following this specification, third-party computers running the Macintosh Operating System (Mac OS) can deliver many of the same operating benefits and user experiences as computers manufactured by Apple. For information about Apple Computer’s copyright, patent, and intellectual property rights in the technology disclosed here, see the licensing information in the front of this book.
