I working on a project to build a PDP-8i for a combined Compute
Science/Electronic Engineering course on design. The purpose of this
course is to teach the basic of computer design, build and Programing a
computer they must build. This course is still a year down the road.
I volunteer to accomplish the building of the prototype system using only
the parts available at the time the orginal computer were built.
The point of the build is, if a 70+ can sit down with the course material,
and design and build a working model of the PDP-8i, the there is no excuse
that each student attending the course, should not be able to accomplish
the same task.
1. I would like to know if you still have your PDP-8i Front Panel still
2. What is the cost for the panel plus shipping to Tucson, Arizona?
3. I understands that you are attempting to re-manufacture the Switch
Rocker Assembly? And possibly the PCB board for mounting the switches?
a. If so, I would like to know status, and an estimated cost for a
B. Would these items be compatible to with c&k 7000 u-frame series
One other question I have is do you have any drawings that give both the
dimensions and profile of the mounting frame? If so are they available?
I want to Thank You for taking the time ahead of time in answering this
