Open-source hosted emulator

Quick EMUlator (QEMU) is an open source emulator that performs hardware virtualization. It is a hosted virtual machine monitor that emulates central processing units (CPUs) through dynamic binary translation and provides a set of device models, enabling it to run a variety of unmodified guest operating systems. QEMU can also be used purely for CPU emulation for user-level processes, allowing applications compiled for one architecture to be run on another. prpl Foundation is making QEMU available for the new MIPS release 6 architecture to enable developers to perform rapid prototyping of code and speed development around the new 64-bit MIPS Warrior I6400 CPU.
