Meaning of EMULATION

Pronunciation:  `emyu'leyshun

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

When one system performs in exactly the same way as another, though perhaps not at the same speed. A typical example would be emulation of one computer by (a program running on) another. You might use an emulation as a replacement for a system whereas you would use a simulation if you just wanted to analyse it and make predictions about it.
