TinyELF is an emulator of 1802-based microcomputers that runs on Palm OS handhelds.
The RCA CDP1802 microprocessor was the basis for a number of small computers in the mid-70s through the early eighties.
The original ELF was described in an August 1976 Popular Electronics article by Joseph Weisbecker, who later expanded the machine with more memory, a hexadecimal keypad and primitive video output.
Several commercial companies soon followed with 1802-based computers of their own.
More on the history of 1802-based computing may be found at http://www.cosmacelf.com and many of the links found on that site.
Emulates both basic ELF and ELF II panel layouts.
Automatically switches to accommodate video when the virtual 1861 Pixie graphics chip is activated.
Selectable memory: 256 bytes, 4K or 16K.
Save, load and delete 1802 programs.
Comes with several test programs in an optionally installed database:
Starship Classic video display program.
Starship Animation program from Popular Electronics.
Seconds Clock video program by Tom Pittman (slightly modified to run faster on the emulator).
Output Test increments the hexadecimal display and flashes the Q LED.
Freeware! Enjoy the program and feel free to share it with other classic computer enthusiasts!
This program was developed entirely on a Palm handheld using Quartus Forth and OnBoard RsrcEdit.
