The Revolution Emulator, also known as RVL_EMU, is a special Wii development environment used in late 2005 & early 2006. It consists of a GameCube development kit connected to a PC running the BroadOn IOP-OS Emulator, allowing for the testing of IOS functionality such as e-ticket services.

RVL_EMU uses the "WK" and "WKMC" (Waikiki and Waikiki Multi Connect) libraries to communicate with a host PC for DVD emulation over the Waikiki.

The BroadOn IOP-OS emulator is a Linux (Fedora Core 3) program which emulates some of IOS' functionality. It was used to test IOS code before the Hollywood was available, along with the Versa board.
