iDeaS is a Nintendo DS emulator for Microsoft Windows and Linux, using GTK+. So far iDeaS has emulated the ARM7 GBA processor at 100%, and the ARM9 dual screen processor at 99%, enabling it to run many commercial ROMs, including "Super Mario 64 DS" and "Pokémon Diamond & Pearl" (with a few graphical errors). The touch screen is fully emulated with a mouse cursor instead of a stylus, and a keyboard can be used to emulate the DS buttons. iDeaS uses a plugin system so that further support can be achieved without looking at the source code of the emulator.

iDeaS has limited wifi emulation, which as of right now only acts as a "dud" wifi plugin, bringing no true wifi, but allowing it to unlock features of DS games that need wifi support to be accessed. It also is the only emulator able to run 's 'sleep mode' challenge, due to a menu command to close the NDS lid; although NO$GBA also emulates closing the lid when minimized, problems with its video codecs prevent Duck Amuck from being played at all.
