SIMH was based on a much older systems emulator called MIMIC, which was written in the late 1960s at Applied Data Research. SIMH was started in 1993 with the purpose of preserving minicomputer hardware and software which was fading into obscurity.
SIMH emulates hardware from the following companies.
