Using QEMU to navigate a 3000 tons ship

Some time ago I was approached by a passionate engineer Jean Michel Schramm, who asked whether QEMU would help saving public finances and a navigation system of a 3000 tons ship.

The project looked interesting, so we gave it a try and succeeded!

More details for those who plan to use QEMU for replacement of
hardware becoming extinct.

Had a really great time at Moscow Center of SPARC Technologies. They invited me to talk about QEMU. The MCST people are very bright and motivated. And their SPARC CPUs are much faster than QEMU can currently emulate. :-) The machines are not Sun clones. For instance it was interesting to see a SPARC V8 machine with a PCI bus.

Despite the company name, they produce not only SPARC systems, but their own VLIW chips, compilers and binary translators as well. Russian readers can find out more on MCST web-site.
