PowerPC* to Intel® Architecture Migration
Completing a successful PowerPC* to Intel® architecture software migration requires an awareness of architecture differences and its impact to the software. This white paper outlines the information that should be considered when planning a software product port from PowerPC to Intel® architecture-based platforms. A thorough review of the architecture differences, operating system considerations, system initialization, migration tools, and software development products must be completed.
The first thing to understand is that every situation is different. Therefore, the scope of work and effort required for the port will vary between situations. The information outlined in this paper will identify items that need to be considered when investigating the migration and resources that can assist during the implementation.
