Have lots of PDP-11 code that wrote in 1980's that can't use as no-one has written additions to PDP-11 emulators which will make one think one is dealing with 80's era data acquisition hardware and digital I/O boards which are far faster on modern microprocessors than there were then.

I don't think writing SIMH device emulators for things like the DEC Unibus D/A and A/D devices, or the DR11-A, would be at all hard.

Neat idea, actually.  It would let me run the "LABBASIC" I created as an honors project in college in 1974 -- a version of RT11 BASIC with added statements to drive those data acquisition devices and the KW-11/P programmable clock.
