There was an article way back in one of the hobbyist mags (Microsystems,
Kilobaud???) about a guy who did adapt a core module to his S-100 box.
Note that it was a "module"--essentially a box with the core and all of the
drivers, sense amps, latches and rewrite circuitry inside. Mostly a job of
interfacing and supplying power.
