Everything at Analogue is powered by FPGA. An FPGA provides unparalleled accuracy and low latency - eliminating many of the problems with software emulation. So you know you are experiencing history with the respect it deserves.
Pocket is designed to be as easy as possible to develop and port FPGA cores to. We added a second dedicated FPGA just for developers to develop & port their own cores. Developers will be able to interface with Analogue OS: Library, Memories and Tools. And to Pocket hardware, I/O's and scalers. We think developers are going to do some amazing things.
Library is a reference level database to play, explore and share. A scholarly cataloging of the entirety of video game history. Search and explore through it's full breadth: system by system, game by game, region by region, developer by developer, publisher by publisher, revision by revision. All of it.
