Pros and cons of emulation - Computer Architecture and Design

Mention the pros and cons of emulation.

- Emulation is the process in which a target CPU and its corresponding hardware would be emulated exactly the same way.

- Emulation is a relatively old concept and is not widely used to emulate full scale OS usage.

- It is considered to be the best platform for embedded/os development.

- Emulation is possible for any hardware and it does not affect the underlying OS ( host ).

- Although there are many positives of emulation there are few downside of it as well, Emulation can be extremely slow.

- Complete thorough hardware support cannot be possible in emulation.

- Emulation is also very resource hungry and requires a lot of ram to function smoothly.
