Comparisons[edit]

Jynx
Open-source Camputers Lynx emulator for Windows and Linux. Emulates the 48K/96K RAM models.
PALE
Probably a closed-source but powerful emulator. Get Simon Owen's FDRAW driver for W2K, XP and later (Needed for real floppy support under PALE). It also has a ZX Spectrum Emulator Mode.
MAME
The system started working in v0.167 (Oct 2015) and many software were supported in v0.196 (Mar 2018). Version 0.200 (Jul 2018) included better Camputers Lynx tape support (with lots of additions to the software list).

Overview[edit]

The Camputers Lynx was released as a 48 kB RAM model, with several reiterations adding RAM expansions up to 192 kB. This machine was unique in that it included a graphic command line and basically allowed the user possibility to read hex values when using third party software.
