I found this in a dumpster behind a pcb fab in town. Its a intersil 6100 trainer, the cmos pdp 8 on a chip. Despite being thrown in a dumpster, it still works. i was able to solder a usb cable on to it to supply the +5v. Might be a good little gadget for me to learn pdp8 assembly code on.

@tuxcrafting

I have too much free time, and a list of dumpsters.

@mrbill0 are you considering filling up that unused RAM chip area?

@crash_override

Im trying to find documentation, it appears nonexistent. Documentation on the monitor rom, as well as the interface ports is kinda critical. it appears to be called a harris 81001-A

@crash_override @mrbill0 Solder pads... I always read shoulder pads - the dark side of the 80s. Thank god I was too busy with my 800XL.

@eiZen
Solder pads and Reaganism are the worst legacies of the 1980s.
@mrbill0

@mrbill0 I would love to have something like that. Relying on BlinkenBone for now.
