I think if you are building a replica is to design your own Flip/Chips
and build a clean design from scratch. A PDP-8/S does not look that
impressive, I know I seen one in the flesh once,as compared to a
PDP-8/e. If you go with 20 I/O pins, (and sneaky pcb pinout )a simple
GAL (SMT) could make up a generic card and be re-programmed for
what ever logic you want.
