Itanium Architecture Features and Cool Compiler Tricks
Dan Lavery
Intel Corporation

The Itanium processor family is a new EPIC architecture co-developed by Intel and Hewlett-Packard, the first implementation of which is nearing launch. EPIC architectures provide many resources and instruction-set features that help the compiler to utilize those resources. This talk will describe some of the features of the architecture and present examples of how the compiler can take advantage of them.

Daniel Lavery has 15 years of experience in architecture and compilers for parallel machines and microprocessors. Since receiving a PhD degree from the University of Illinois in 1997, he has worked at Intel on the architecture and compilers for Itanium. He is currently an Itanium compiler developer in the Intel Compiler Lab.
