Emulator

In computing, an emulator is hardware or software that enables one computer system (called the host) to behave like another computer system (called the guest). An emulator typically enables the host system to run software or use peripheral devices designed for the guest system. Emulation refers to the ability of a computer program in an electronic device to emulate (or imitate) another program or device. Many printers, for example, are designed to emulate Hewlett-Packard LaserJet printers because so much software is written for HP printers. If a non-HP printer emulates an HP printer, any software written for a real HP printer will also run in the non-HP printer emulation and produce equivalent printing. Since at least the 1990s, many video game enthusiasts have used emulators to play classic (and/or forgotten) arcade games from the 1980s using the games' original 1980s machine code and data, which is interpreted by a current-era system.

Z80 Core for Arduino Mega

“This library only functions with the Arduino Mega or Mega 2560 due to memory constraints! This is a free, open source project which comprises light modification of Marat Fayzullin’s brilliant Z80 emulator in C in order to make it …

How to Build Vice 3.5 (x64sc, etc.) on Raspberry Pi 400

“The Raspberry Pi 400 invokes a sense of nostalgia back to the all-in-one systems of the past, such as those commonly available in the 80’s (about 40 years ago!) of having the keyboard and computer all in one, with …

PiDP-11: Replica of the 1970s PDP-11/70

“The PDP-11 was probably the most influential computer ever. It defined what we think of as normal, it was the first machine you could get Unix for, and Windows can trace its roots to the PDP-11’s other …

A Z80 CP/M emulator for the SAMD51

“Retro computing is very popular. It’s interesting to experience what computing was like in the 80s when 8-bit processors were the standard and 64K of memory was generous. While you can get a taste of this by using an …

FPG-1 is a PDP-1 implementation in FPGA

“DEC PDP-1 is a computer designed and produced in 1959. Considering the pace of change in computing, that might seem like the prehistoric age. However, it is also surprisingly modern and proves a point that the basic concepts still …
