IF you have the part on Qbus already then a small backplance with other
scaled sized parts and it's left to being a programming project.

Seriously I already have a BA11VA with 11/23, 235kb ram, IO and RQDX3 
in only four dual slots, why bother smaller?  

For that fact why wreck a J11 CPU board to make a J11 system?
