Also I did not mention earlier my PDP-8 diagnostic page:
has more or less what you asked for. It has all the base PDP-8e series CPU core
diagnostics as listings
in PDF, binary tape images in BIN and RIM, and disassembled sources in PAL and
BTW my PDP-8 implementation in Verilog (not VHDL) passes all these diagnostics,
as well as running
chess, focal, and other such images.
