Here is a couple of examples of how people ended up using my EPROM emulator:
Let’s start with Torsten, who decided to use the emulator to help with the development on his ZX81.
The next one on the list is John and his OMEGA MSX, here is what John shared with me: “Emulator working on my OMEGA MSX (Home built). I use the emulator to emulate cartridge eproms (small games up 64K)”
Leon, the “car hacker” uses the emulator to tune the map inside his car’s ECU.
Richard had a somewhat unusual but very interesting use case:
“Here is a picture of my HP-71b with the HP Curve Fitting 32k ROM loaded in the emulator. Fantastic. I can put my $10 UV Eprom eraser away for good”
Luke is using the emulator to develop firmware for the very popular Ben Eater’s BE6502 “computer”:
“Now I am able to write 6502 assembly in VSCode and use a Makefile to build and deploy the code directly to the BE6502. It even triggers the reset line after code is deployed”
Rick is using the emulator with his Atari 2600
Rene has been working on his 8080 computer and this is what he had to say about the emulator:
“I think, this is a great tool and will make my development much easier. My target: a modular DIY system, developed in Germany in the early 80s. See nkc-wiki.de”
Alexander, my good friend from Canada and his amazing 6802 wire wrapped computer:
Last but not least is Laurent, who is using the emulator to revive some old 8031 projects, Laurent mentions:
“your emulator opens a wealth of new possibilities, thank you so much!”
Note how in his emulator the probe connector is soldered on the bottom side of the PCB, turns out there are two versions of the emulator probe DIP28 connector, so he was forced to “mirror” the connections by installing the connector this way.
If you have an interesting use case for the emulator, send me pictures please and I’ll add them here.
