An introduction is given to the SPARC architecture and its more interesting features. The discussion covers the registers (both window and floating-point), and instructions, including formats, load/store, integer computation, control transfer, floating-point computation, and coprocessor. A brief comparison with Berkeley RISC (reduced-instruction-set-computer) and SOAR is provided.<>
