A tool that enables students to run programs written in 8085 assembly language on a personal computer instead of a microprocessor kit

editor's review





Virtual 8085 is a lightweight Windows application developed specifically for helping you interpret assembly language programs specific to 8085 microprocessors. You are given the freedom to compile tools without the need to possess 8085 microprocessors.

User interface

The utility adopts a clean GUI that allows you to switch between several key features of the program, namely source code and configuration settings.

In addition, you can check out a series of timing diagrams in a dedicated panel. You may pick the preferred diagram type from a drop-down list with several options, such as CMA, STC, RLC, RAR, NOP, SIM, RIM, and HALT.

On the downside, a help manual is not included in the package so experimenting with the dedicated parameters is your only chance in order to get an idea about how this tool works. You can only rely on tooltips for viewing short descriptions about the utility’s capabilities each time you hover your mouse cursor over a specific parameter.

How it works

Virtual 8085 offers you the possibility to import data from 8085 assembly language code files, export the information to plain text file format, print data, as well as perform basic editing tasks (cut, copy, paste or delete).

What’s more, you can work with general purpose registers, special purpose registers, and flag register, and make use of several preset hotkeys for faster actions. The Intelligent Help panel reveals information about the current 8085 assembly language.

Bottom line

To sum things up, Virtual 8085 comes with a handy suite of features for helping students run programs written in 8085 assembly language on their computer.
