Very little is required beyond a CPU and memory. First, a Z80 isn't
required; you can use an 8080 or an 8085. (or one of the later Z80
implementations) You also don't need 64K; CP/M will run in much less,
16KB I think was the minimum.
Beyond that, you need some sort of ASCII textual console device (like
a serial port, or a video subsystem + keyboard interface) and a
