I am Gregory Estrade, a.k.a Torlus, a software developer and a self-taught hardware hacker. I especially like reverse-engineering stuff, and use FPGAs to emulate ASICs.

I also like what is called nowadays “retro-computing” or “retro-gaming”, so my projects are almost all about emulation of old machines, or making it easier to use obsolete hardware on current technology.


They are available on GitHub, but if you fell like there is something missing, please contact me.

Here are my latest projects so far:

  • Raspberry Pi (partial) support in QEMU. Please check my QEMU fork.

  • Atari Jaguar in a FPGA (videos here and here).

  • Nec PC-Engine (or TurboGrafx-16) in a FPGA (videos here and here).

  • SEGA Megadrive (or Genesis) in a FPGA (video here).

I am also hosting a blog and forum for the HxC Floppy Drive Emulator, which is an amazing project from a friend of mine.


I am not really a blogger. However, I will try to keep this part updated.
