sparc on intel platform emulator

sorry, running Solaris programs in Windows or Linux is not possible... even if you download the source code, a very significant modification has to be done to make it work for another OS, more so on Windows...

what you can do is download Solaris 8 for Intel from the Sun download site...

i agree with jhonny_yang... and i apologize for not clarifying this...

not all applications would run in the intel machine, specially if processor-specific code included in the application is necessary for it to complete its task...

Sun (Sparc, UltraSparc) and Intel (x86) are not compatible architecures. They are not 'binary' compatible, which means that executable for one machine will not run on the other one.

simics is platform emulator, only suitable for testing but not for
running apps

Solaris for SPARC and for x86 are not compatible, 'cause they SPARC and x86 use different ISA(instruction set), but if you use some instruction level simulator (such as semics), you can run a virtual machine(even different ISA with the host machine!) that can run apps for different ISA.

Solaris on Unix BSD

Does anyone work with OpenBSD, FreeBSD, etc, and can run EDA programs compiled for Solaris, like Synopsys DC, Mentor IC, etc?

I am afraid that the x86 and the SPARC architecture are two different and "hostile" worlds. Solaris may work on both but that has nothing to do with applications. The same applies to other OSs I am afraid. In general, applications for x86 do not work on SPARC (except if an emulator is used).
