The CHARON emulators are software packages that provide a hardware abstraction layer of a specific computer system. The system CPU (instructions, registers, memory, interrupts) its internal structure and many of its peripherals are emulated as a complete, customizable unit using the hardware of a host platform. The purpose of the CHARON
emulators is to migrate operating systems and application software to a modern system, without requiring binary compatibility or code conversion of the existing software.
