- PCx86, an x86-based emulator of the IBM PC and PC-compatibles
- PC8080, an 8080 machine emulator (see Space Invaders and the VT100 Terminal)
- C1Pjs, an emulation of the 6502-based Ohio Scientific Challenger 1P
- PDPjs, a set of machine emulation modules supporting the DEC PDP-10 and PDP-11
- PCjs Devices, for simple machines like the TI-57 Calculator, the Game of Life, and Lite-Brite
The PCjs machine above uses PCx86 configured with an Intel 8088 running at 4.77Mhz, with 64Kb of RAM and an IBM Monochrome Display Adapter. The machine is also available with a Control Panel featuring the built-in PCx86 Debugger. For even greater control, build your own PC. The PCx86 Documentation will help you get started.
PCx86 has steadily evolved to support more classic x86-based machines, including the IBM PC XT, the 80286-based IBM PC AT, and the 80386-based COMPAQ DeskPro 386. PCx86 fully supports the original machine ROMs, video cards, etc, and all machines run at their original speeds.
The goals of the PCjs Project are to create fast, full-featured simulations of classic computer hardware, help people understand how these early machines worked, make it easy to experiment with different machine configurations, and provide a platform for running and analyzing old computer software.
Some pre-configured machines are shown below, ready to run BASIC, DOS, Windows, OS/2, and other assorted software.
There are many more PCx86 Demos, including an IBM PC with Dual Displays demonstrating early multi-monitor support, and multiple IBM PC XT machines running side-by-side with CGA Displays and EGA Displays.
Below is the OSI Challenger C1P, another simulation in the PCjs Project. It simulates Ohio Scientific’s 6502-based microcomputer, released in 1978. More details about this simulation and the original machine are available in the C1Pjs Documentation.
