Iyonix 26 bit emulator in developmentBy Chris Williams. Published: 20th Oct 2002, 20:36:03 | Permalink | Printable
"omg, omg 26bit emulator on a 32bit system" drobe.co.uk has today learnt that a 26 bit emulator for Castle's recently unveiled 32bit XScale computer is in the works.
Aemulor, pronounced aim-you-lore if you're one of those odd people who gets all upset over odd product names, presumably enables Iyonix users to run 26bit only software on the 32bit system. The full 32bit issue is discussed here, but essentially current 26 bit software will not work correctly on Castle's new 32bit machine unless it is made 32bit compatible or an emulator is employed to do the conversion on the fly. The Aemulor website is currently owned and maintained by spellings.net, which was recently mentioned in the Mail on Sunday newspaper.
Just before you question our editorial decision to publish this Aemulator 'news', we do know it's a typical "Coming soon" thing and we're painfully aware that the recent Castle announcement has actually raised more questions than answered. However, it is clear that some serious developments are afoot and we'll bring you news as it goes public. Stay tuned.
