Long shot: looking for legacy SBC

Started by Noodnik December 5, 2010
Hi,  Many years ago there was a SBC that emulated a PDP8-E, IIRC 
IMS61-something-or-other?

If there's one or two out there that still work, I'd be interested in 
getting hold of them. Nothing in EBAY, I'm not sure where else to look. TIA 


There are actually several PDP-8e around. Most are based on the 
Intersil IM6100 or Harris HD-6120  

There is a moderately active news group dedicated to the 
pdp 8 you might want to look at alt.sys.pdp8


Regards,

TIA There is at least one FPGA version also: <http://www.aracnet.com/~healyzh/pdp8emu.html> <http://madscientistroom.org/fpga/pdp8.html> A typical desk-top PC would probably be able to emulate a PDP-8 at 10X the throughput of the real thing... I'm guessing that your real challenge is reading the data that you would be feeding to this PDP-8 RK

I have a working PDP 8/L out in the garage.
