I am building a project that needs to use a Stand alone dumb terminal

Any ideas out there. Even a better search keyword than "dumb terminal"
would help. Ben.
Hmm We have cows and grass and oil pumps outside. This must be the
middle of the Alberta. Cold Lake if you really want to know.
I have just finished a 20 BIT CPU design with a DE1 (ORIGINAL) FPGA
development card, and looking at the 1974 - 1976 time frame for
a physical computer hardware design. The bare metal part is done, so now
have test and clean up the logic details and I/O devices. Late this
year I plan to have software and hardware pre-tested on the FPGA
card before I start laying out the mother board and PCBs.
This will be a modern version but basically a 1975 ish logic design.
Small Proms, 74LSxxx and 2901A's and MK4096 4Kx1 Dram speeds.
