Indeed.  My client at the time bought me my copy; it was bundled with
the Oxford Semiconductor OXFW911 FireWire/IDE development board.

The whole development system, I was told, cost USD $ 4,000.00.

Happily, I still have it all, but it might take some time to actually
lay my hands on it.

Besides the memory mapping, the emulator also supports emulating I/O
devices and interactions with other kinds of cores.  It's meant to
enable programming System-on-Chip designs before one has real hardware
