An instrument which makes it possible to imitate, or emulate, the behavior of a microprocessor. It is used to debug a chip or system, while running in conjunction with the system software, before the final product is finally produced.
A hardware or software device that performs like something else; for example, a PC that emulates an Atari 2600 so it can run Atari 2600 games.
This is usually a program that performs the same operation of another program or a piece of hardware. For example, there are programs that allow a PC to...

A device built to work exactly like another device, either hardware, software, or a combination of both.
An emulator is a program that allows one computer platform to mimic another for the purposes of running its software. Typically (but not always) running a program through an emulator will not be quite as pleasent an experience as running it on the real system.
Hardware that allows the actual on-board processor registers to be accessed. Used during software development. The TMS320C80 emulators from Texas Instruments and White Mountain DSP are examples.
An program that is built to run another systems software or games. Psp emulators are made to execute software that was written to run on the system being emulated.The program allows the PSP to interpret functions native to the original system that a game (or ROM) might call.
A representation (hardware or software) of an electronic device or function that simulates its behaviour. It is used to verify performance of a circuit design by analysis.

An EMULATOR is a program you load into your Amiga/PC/Mac/whatever, that lets you load and play all of the SPECTRUM games. There are billions of them for you to download, for lots of different computer types. There are even ones for the Playstation and the Dreamcast - so you can finally play some good games on the latter [ducks]. Please note that the games and cheats here will ONLY work on the ZX Spectrum (either on an emulator, or the real computer). For help with non-Spectrum emulation, click here.
A device, computer program, or system that accepts the same inputs and produces the same outputs as a given system.
A device or program that imitates or emulates the function of the original device.
Emulation is a very popular concept in computing. Although computer architectures and software programs vary widely, ultimately, they are all just ways of processing ones and zeros, so technically speaking, any computer should be able to "emulate" the capabilities of any other computer, if programmed correctly. Thus, today's personal computers can pretend that they are actually old dinosaurs like the ENIAC or the IBM 701. It is more difficult to do it the other way around, but that doesn't always stop deranged hackers.
A piece of hardware or software that will allow one type of computer to use the software designed for a different type of computer.
A program that mimics the action of some other program or hardware device. A 3270 emulator mimics the actions of a 3270 display station, using the facilities of a personal computer or workstation. NetWare for SAA emulates a cluster controller.
A piece of software which runs on one type of computer, such as a PC, but emulates another, thus enabling games to be played on a computer or console they have not been designed to run on.
hardware or software designed to imitate another device, used in product development.
Refers to a computer program that simulates another system or CPU.
An electronic circuit or computer program that performs functionally like another circuit or program; for example, a computer of one manufacturer emulating that of another manufacturer.
Emulators are programs used to emulate games that were made for other game systems or computers.
An emulator is a program you run on your computer that allows you to run other programs meant for a different computer or operating system. There are free emulators for MS-DOS, for the 3Com Palm handhelds, for old Apple ][, Commodore C64, and Timex ZX81s, and even for many video game devices such as Atari and Nintendo game consoles. Commercial products allow you to emulate the Macintosh, Windows 98, or Windows NT if you must. If a program running under an emulator crashes, it doesn't take down your whole computer or any of the other programs you are running; you just need to restart the emulator.
hardware or software which enables one type of computer to behave like another.
A piece of software designed to make one computer act as another computer or arcade hardware. See also Emulators.
A software emulator allows computer programs to run on a platform (computer architecture and/or operating system) other than the one for which they were originally written. Unlike simulation, which attempts to gather a great deal of runtime information as well as reproducing a program's behavior, emulation attempts to model to various degrees the state of the device being emulated. High-level emulation uses a combination of the two approaches in an attempt to retain as much accuracy as possible while having the advantages of simplicity and speed provided by simulation.
