riscos.info maintains the source repository for RPCEmu, developed by Tom Walker.  Peter Naulls did the port to Linux. Chris Williams did the Mac OS X PPC port. RPCEmu is an dynamic recompiling (JIT) emulator of Acorn RiscPC-class hardware. It includes working emulation of ARM6, ARM7 and StrongARM cores, IDE and Floppy emulation, VIDC20 and IOMD chipset emulation, and other features.

RPCEmu is currently maintained and distributed via the [http://www.marutan.net/rpcemuspoon RPCEmu Spoon Edition] website. Please check there for documentation, binary downloads, source code downloads and developer information.

*Address its emulation limitations (like host drive and network access)

*Test the dynamic recompiler

*Emulate the Portable_ReadBMUVariable SWI to read the host's battery state and a write RISC OS program to display it (Virtual Acorn also uses this interface, so the program would work on both emulated platforms)
