AVR emulating ARM Cortex M0

Posted on Friday, April 20th, 2012 in ARM, AVR by DP

First, an AVR that boots Linux. Now a Cortex M0 emulator for the ATtiny:

I like writing emulators. Since my last one (ARM emulator that booted linux), I was wondering how much faster one could emulate an ARM cpu on an atmega device. The C-language core netted 10KHz. This time I decided to reduce the scope of the problem, and try to use a smaller device. So the goal was then: Cortex-M0 emulator on an ATTiny85.

Via the forum.

  1. TitanMKD says:

    It is just like a joke to emulate ARM M0 with ATTiny with a core speed of 10Khz !!
    It is like to emulate a CoreI5 with a 8051 CPU ;-)

  2. @TitanMKD: reading is the cure for your ignorance. The emulated clock is actually 200KHz, not 10
