CHARON-SPK/SS20 Evaluation Version

Thank You for your interest in Stromasys CHARON-SPK/SS20 Emulator. CHARON-SPK/SS20 for Linux (former name SYBIL/SS20) is a free Sun SPARCstation 20 virtual system. It emulates Sun SPARCstation 20 machine on x86-64 Linux with limited performance and functionality. To make the emulator available to the widest audience, the CHARON Evaluation Version is made available as a VMware virtual machine image of a Linux system, in which the SPARCstation 20 emulator has already been installed and configured.


The SPARCstation 20 emulator functions exactly as a “real” SPARCstation 20  – you can load any original Sun application, third-party, or user software onto the system, and it will run exactly the same as if you were running on SPARCstation 20 hardware.


The CHARON-SPK/SS20 Evaluation Version product is a reduced-capability version of our Sun SPARCstation 20 emulator. The performance of the Evaluation Version has been artificially limited in performance. Uptime is limited to 5 days (users have to start it again after 5 days)
