Stylized Atari Logo

A computer manufacturer specialising in consumer computers, Arcade machines, and of course home video game systems. After the failed Jaguar Atari's coin-op division (Arcade machines) split from Atari proper, and have remained in business.

8-bit era

Atari's entry into the home computer was dominated by designs by Jay Miner. It is to be said the Amiga 1000 follows in the Atari 400 tradition of really powerful custom ICs, such as the RIOT chip.

16-bit era

After losing the Lorraine chipset to arch rival Commodore Atari quickly put together the Atari ST. The operating system was provided by Digital Research, GEMDOS.

32-bit era

Emulators

There are a few emulators for various models of the Atari ST's.

  • STonX - The original emulator for X-11, it ran on a varity of UNIX platforms.
  • Aranym - 'Atari runs on Any Machine'. This is by far the most complete emulator.
