LC-3 Architecture

In the previous post we talked about what emulators and virtual machines are, when they appeared, what is their current status and use.

What I want in this set of articles is to explain in a simple and summarized way how a computer works and the best way to do it is to create one, I don't mean physically, but rather an emulator. I will explain and write some code throughout the article. To implement the emulator I'll use Rust and the architecture we are going to use is from LC-3, since implementing an emulator for x86 is extremely laborious, even for an old system.
