PowerPC Microprocessor Family: Vector/SIMD Multimedia Extension Technology Programming Environments Manual Version 2.07c
Related links: Cell Broadband Engine

Software Reference Manual
Vector/SIMD (single instruction stream, multiple data stream) multimedia extension technology provides a software model that accelerates the performance of various software applications and runs on reduced instruction set computing (RISC) microprocessors. The objective of this manual is to help programmers provide software that is compatible with the family of PowerPC processors in general, and with the Cell Broadband Engine (CBE) in particular, using vector processing technology. This book describes how vector processing technology relates to the 64-bit portion of the PowerPC architecture. This book supplements the "PowerPC Microprocessor Family: Programming Environments Manual for 64-bit Microprocessors".
