SH-4 Emulator

Hi

I'm looking for a Hitachi SH-4 Emulator are there any out there? I don't care if I need to pay for it, I just need to find one for a project I'm doing. I'm looking at QEMU right now, but the SH-4 support is only in testing phases. Does anyone have experience with this?

Thanks in advance for any help that you can give me!

So is there nobody out there that has an answer for me?

There is no true HARP SH7750 emulator for an x86 based system available
Was there a specific device on this platform you wanted to emulate?

For Windows CE for example try:

I wanted to run linux off of it and be able to load or unload disk images. Create programs specifically off that CPU so that porting to the Sega Dreamcast would be somewhat easier.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Well there are a few good Dreamcast emu's but none that I know of with a programming interface.  Would they be any help?

See, I know that there are Dreamcast emulators, but the problem is that I want a straight SH4 emulator or hardware card with a hardware SH4 on it. So that I can compile versions of Linux and other programs based on the SH4 processor.

I know there are already versions of Linux for the SH4 but I truely want to understand Linux and cross compilation. The project I'm working on requires me to customize a version of Linux (very light on memory, but still utilize X windows for Display).

I know that with GCC I can compile programs into SH4 binaries, but I want to be able to TEST them too with a decent degree of accuracy.

Sorry not aware of any hardware based emulation :(
Some additonal Linux porting here that may help you http://sh-linux.org/
but I don't think there's any improvment on the GCC you already have.

i'm confused by this notion of hardware emulation of a hardware solution.....

You're not emulating anything if you're on the hardware...

Are you really asking for a SH-4 based machine...  

You'd build the executable on the windows/dos machine and then run the code you build on the other computer, yes?

I remember seeing advertisements for Hatachi boards for embedded computer solutions... I can't remember exactly where, though, and I'm old and senile now.

I do have some experience with hardware boards doing what you're describing, and they are a *painful* environment to develop in.  It's a major pain to move the code from the development system to the hardware solution...  Given the existence of a software emulator, i'd have been all over that in a heartbeat.  it would have greatly sped up the debugging cycle.
