Unicorn Engine released


Unicorn is a lightweight, multi-platform, multi-architecture CPU emulator framework based on QEMU. Unicorn offers some unparalleled features:

* Multi-architecture: ARM, AMM64 (ARMv8), M68K, MIPS, SPARC, and X86 (16, 32, 64-bit)
* Clean/simple/lightweight/intuitive architecture-neutral API
* Implemented in pure C language, with bindings for Python, Java, and Go
* Native support for Windows & *nix (with Mac OSX, Linux, *BSD & Solaris confirmed)
* High performance via Just-In-Time compilation
* Support for fine-grained instrumentation at various levels
* Thread-safety by design

Unicorn was announced at BlackHat this Summer, and the source for this open source project just got released. Looking forward to using this to debug firmware …but even though it is based on QEMU, I don’t see how to Unicorn to work with OVMF. If someone knows how, please post a Comment with info!
