    Default PDP-11 Hack complete

    Hi,

    With the newest card my system is now complete. The last addition was an enhanced multifunction board that includes more SLUs and a previous TOY (DS1215) hack on a side-breadboard is now nicely placed on the PCB.

    Although fully functional, this is more a prototype and I plan to make final revisions of the boards. Most boards have some minor errors (e.g. wrong wire, missing capacitors,...). Or I want to add some more features that require a new board. And then there is an empty slot

    I'm currently running RSX-11MPlus V4.6 and the CPU is clocked at 22.1184MHz.

    Congratulations on your success! The photos look very nice.

    So, what do you anticipate the price will be for a fully assembled and tested bundle?

    That looks so cool.

    Well done on putting this together.

    Who'll be first to build a PDPortable? Think portable like the first Compaq/luggable.


    Cheers,

    Andy.

    It is rumored that Tadpole had a PDP-11 processor in one of their laptops.

    That is something I would love to see.

    This is awesome work. Well done. I’d love to build one if I had fewer than 2 dozen projects in the queue...
