Hi everyone!

I've been working in stealth mode on a software emulator for the ARM architecture. It runs on a PC (Linux only at present) and emulates the system features of the Sharp Zaurus SL-5500 platform. Currently I am able to run bare machine programs, vanilla Linux kernels, and OpenZaurus SL-5500 distributions. The emulator uses some fairly sophisticated simulation techniques so performance is very good. I am close to a real-time simulation of the SL-5500 on a fairly ordinary 2.6 GHz Pentium 4. It does a pretty good job with Zaurus Pacman for example!

The emulator will be a commercial product, and I'm looking for volunteers for the beta test program. If you are interested, please check out the details over at http://www.virtera.com and become a site member if you'd like to give it a try. You will need to have access to an x86 Linux machine with a supported distro, and have some familiarity with installing from RPM, building Linux kernels and installing OpenZaurus to get started.

Look forward to hearing from you! Cheers,

Mark.

anyone interested should download it ASAP as it looks as if virtera is stopping this product... a great shame, I am wondering why they couldn't do a version to allow pocketPC developers and palm developers to work on a virtual device.

I had offered to Mark and his company to write the full Windows port for free, including a full debugging suite with custom ports to read/write to any value in memory. I did not need source code access to his product, just runtime-level access with a working API. I was willing to give him and his company the source code of my product, as well as sign over all rights to the project for any and all purposes. He flatly refused to agree, even becoming rude to me at the end when I asked him if he realized what I was giving him.

At the time, I had told many of my co-workers about it, and they could not understand his reasoning. There must've been some real reason why he shut it down. I wished he hadn't, as I'm still many years later without a good emulator.
