emulation

[‚em·yə′lā·shən]
(computer science)
Imitation of one computer system by another so that the latter functions in exactly the same way and runs the same programs.

emulation

(architecture)
When one system performs in exactly the same way as another, though perhaps not at the same speed. A typical example would be emulation of one computer by (a program running on) another. You might use an emulation as a replacement for a system whereas you would use a simulation if you just wanted to analyse it and make predictions about it.

Keysight's 5G network emulation solutions based on Keysight's UXM 5G Wireless Test Platform enable device makers to validate 5G NR multi-mode designs across protocol, RF and radio resource management (RRM) in both non-standalone (NSA) and stand-alone (SA) modes.
In the industry, there were excellent achievements in the emulation movement "Good labor, creative labor".
Clearly, on both counts of a life so unworthy of emulation or inspiration, and of having been dishonorably discharged (deposed) from being commander in chief, Marcos should not be buried in the Libingan ng mga Bayani, and President Duterte, by decreeing that he should be, is guilty of gross abuse of discretion.
There were several signs pointing to emulation for the older "Star Wars" titles, including the appearance of a PlayStation 2 logo, a save system in place to handle the older memory card system from the PS2 and certain system prompts which third-party developers normally can't access, according to Eurogamer.
The next four chapters closely read plays by Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, and Philip Massinger that take classical Rome, including its texts, culture, and ethos, as the object of emulation. Each of the plays also portrays "a confounding enactment" of Roman models (29).
With these improvements, FPGA implementations of SCE-MI transactors utilize less chip resources and the entire emulation runs significantly faster.
Chapter 2 deals solely with Titus Andronicus, a play in which Dickson sees emulation authorizing Shakespeare's language (29).
Further, a latest-generation hardware emulator, the Veloce 2 emulation platform lowers project schedules and costs with high-performance simulation acceleration, virtual emulation and traditional in-circuit emulation of complex SoC designs.
The reseller agreement enables Pick Cloud to offer and leverage AccuSoft's GUI development tools as well as its connectivity and terminal emulation products.
Mentor Graphics has taken a leading role both in driving the UPF standard and working in parallel to deliver a comprehensive and open UPF-based solution with Questa verification and Veloce emulation. Together they deliver increased simulation performance, new power intent debug, low-power clock domain crossing verification and low-power emulation, enabling users to thoroughly verify and debug all low-power aspects of their design in a manageable IP/block to system methodology.
"(P)eople who are doing large chips find that simulation is only adequate for the blocks within those chips, and that full-chip verification, especially software verification, requires the addition of emulation," Rhines said.
As a work of intellectual archaeology, it places a heavy emphasis on translations of economic and political texts across European languages as these demonstrate the political-economic ideas that were sought for emulation.
