a starting point might be simH, carving out the drive/storage component
from there and building some sort of stand-alone simH drive using a
Raspberry Pi or something. That's what comes to mind if it were me making
a drive for a UNIBUS system. A card to interface with simH as a real drive
would, not just a serial port.
