This emulator will emulate the Pico/Elf V2 computer, which is a self build kit designed by Mike Riley. Additional information about the Pico/Elf can be found on Mikes Pico/Elf V2 page. Pico/Elf V2 is an evolution of the Micro/Elf. Pico/Elf removes the address display, data displays, and input toggles along with associated circuitry in order to add an RS232 port, ROM socket and IDE/CF interface, allowing for a complete machine capable of running Elf/OS.
