> 1. I built and tested it (rev C board) per the instructions and all that worked nicely. A few minor points in the instructions, quickly clarified by David and already updated on the web page. I used an old 2 MB BeagleBone Black (the kind that was shipped some years ago with the abandoned Angstrom distribution), that fits just fine.
Oh hells, I’m just drawing up a cape for an old 2GB BBB for my second DECbox project but this might be a better use for it and I can get a PocketBeagle to use on the DECbox instead.
For those that may not have heard of it, DECbox is a BBB-based emulator that fits inside a VT100 and using simh will emulate your favourite anything that uses a serial terminal.
That’s my first one, the 2nd one will go inside one of my VT220s, or even a 240.
