    Hi!
    I do a lot of work with Raspberry Pi, Arduino and ESP8266, it will be wonderful if you'll support that board in your VM, like a way to install and use Raspbian and other distro about that boards, I'd really like to make all my test with Raspberry Pi directly with a virtual machine that emulate the GPIO pins, it will be a wonderful platform to learn and test it

    Well, you are asking for an emulator/simulator, meaning a program that emulates a different architecture, that's not what PDM does, Parallels runs OSs that run on the same architecture as the Host which is Intel x86/x64. Not that this couldn't be added to PDM, but it's a totally different program.

    You might want to google arduino/raspberry Pi simulator/emulator.
    Or check this out: https://circuits.io/

    Thank you for sharing your feedback. Yes, @Specimen is right. You cannot emulate/ simulate different architectures in Parallels Desktop. You can use Autodesk's Circuits or PartSim simulator.
