TechPubs book shelf

Silicon Graphics TechPubs was the library of hardware and software documentation for Silicon Graphics' range of MIPS/IRIX systems. It was freely available on the web without need for an account or a service contract.

The end of general availability for MIPS/IRIX products was December 29th, 2006, and IRIX has been unsupported since the end of December 2013. Finally, in February 2016, Silicon Graphics International Corp. outsourced its support site to a third party and discontinued the TechPubs site.

The aim of this site is to keep the wealth of TechPubs information available to hobbyists who like to play with MIPS/IRIX systems. This site does not publish documentation for current products of Silicon Graphics International Corp. but is restricted to documentation of hardware and software from before December 29th, 2006.
