    Not I know the psp has about a 480mhz processor and 32mb of RAM. Well considering the iPad has a 1ghz processor and 256 mb of ram its well within it's limits.

    It's just that I have 0 experience with programming and I know that it has been done with other devices (Gameboy, Gameboy color, Gameboy advance, Nes, Snes, etc.)
    Those are good enough and even if the springboard running makes it fall below these standards it could easily respiring or boot in psp mode.

    Edit: what is the psp's base code? The ds I think runs home brew and I got no idea what the gameboy runs. It is definetly possible it's just if a developer is up the the challenge

    I dont see it happening, there arent that many great PSP emulators for computers as it is.

    Doesn't work like that. These are different animals. You need a computer significantly more powerful than the PSP to emulate it. The iPad doesn't fit the bill.

    Yeah exactly even the emulators for PC run really poorly and lag, not even all games work

    The general rule of thumb in regards to emulation is that you generaly need 10x the clock speed of the original hardware to properly emulate it. So to even think of emulating the psp you would need a 3ghz ipad since its CPU runs at 333mhz. As other commenters have said, even PCs struggle with psp emulation due to both that and the fact that the PSP is still a relatively new platform and so not fully understood.

    Now, modern processor designs with multipule cores does make that rule less valid now, but the basic concept still applies in regards to the ipad.
