The 8086 was the first 16-bit processor designed by Intel and launched onto the market in the 70s' which started the x86 architecture on microprocessors. Emu8086 is an emulator that allows us to run on modern computers those programs developed for that processor.
With this emulator, you can also code in assembly language as it comes along with a built-in editor, which allows us to recreate a totally realistic user experience on PCs equipped with this processor.
It comes along with a really simple user interface with functions such as the following:
- Different code examples, with basic development exercises (Hello world, palindrome, traffic lights…).
- Assembly language editor.
Its functions allow us to create our own system and record its binary code on a floppy disk. However, it's a trial version that can only be used for a short period of time. To be able to extend its use, we need to sign up as a user.
