Previous is a Next computer hardware emulator. It aims to emulate a Next Cube or a Next Station with all its peripheral.
The emulator is not complete yet.
|Processor||68030 and 68040 CPUs work, including MMU for both, FPU is platform sensitive and has minor incompleteness|
|Memory||All memory + Mono video memory is handled + experimental color display|
|User input||Keyboard works, but partially bad key assignment Mouse works, but problems with losing focus|
|DMA||works for SCSI, MO, Memory to Memory and partially for Ethernet, with dummy for Sound and SCC|
|SCSI peripherals||CDROM and Hdd emulated|
|Cube MO drive||works, including real Reed Solomon ECC|
|Timers||Real time clock + 2 internal timers handled (known issues for event counter)|
Previous is derived from the Hatari emulator sources that are partly based on the amiga emulator UAE. Some Previous source code files are now back in Hatari's source code for 6800 MMU correctness.
Previous may be compiled on linux, MacosX and win32 (and probably other target OS).
The Previous Website was hosted in an atari (case), a small via C3 motherboard in an atari STF case with functional keyboard (original keyboard converted to full HID usb keyboard with a teensy mini board).
