This second edition continues the tradition with an insider's look at the newest AS/400e series. Whether you are an executive looking for a high-level overview or a "bit-twiddling techie" who wants all the details, Dr. Frank G.

Simply, Inside the AS/400, Second Edition, is written for those who want to learn more about all of the AS/400 systems from someone who knows. Is it magic, or just good design? After reading this book perhaps you will agree that it's a little of both. As the original architect of the IBM System/38, Dr. Soltis created a revolutionary new computer architecture based on his Ph.D. dissertation research. The single-level addressability of that architecture, along with the technology-independent machine interface he proposed, led to a totally new breed of computers.

During the past few years, he has participated in the definition of the PowerPC architecture and led the effort in Rochester to move the AS/400 to the 64-bit PowerPC RISC processors. He continues to define sever Mite$ en, ut r W e~ the direction for the AS/400 architecture in the future. In addition to his IBM responsibilities, Dr. Soltis is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Minnesota, where he teaches classes on advanced computer architectures.
