Atari Lynx emulator is a project to build an emulator for the Atari Lynx handheld system in managed code.


The implementation is built from the ground up based on the technical specification and an existing C++ implementation called Handy at SourceForge.

The goal is to realize an implementation that

  • can serve as the basis for multiple clients, e.g. Windows, XBox360, Windows Phone 7 and Surface (based on XNA, Silverlight and Managed DirectX)
  • teaches the implementation of an emulator
  • relates the technical specification to source code
  • create an object-oriented design where possible (design first, optimize later)


Any help is appreciated. Contact me if you are interested to participate.
