I'm not sure if the author of this nice bit of work is on here, but I'm 
looking at a board for this, the Altera DE-1.  Unfortunately there are a 
plethora of Altera DE-1 boards and much puzzlement by me as to whether 
this is the right one.  The page with the info is deficient in details 
to tell.

The actual part which the author used is the key thing here, and not 
just the name of the board.  I'd appreciate opinions here as to whether 
these will run PDP2011 or whether it will be a nice learning board for 
my mistake pile.


There is currently what I think is a good specimen available if anyone 
is interested.


It includes the software and docs.  The current one I have was a student 
version sans the documents and software.

I hope to get the thing going to play with sometime soon.   There are so 
many small boards out there for very little money once I get this done 
and understand more about targeting this board and others I'd like to 
see how cheap a board this could be made to run with give the current 

There is currently an Arm/fpga Zilog chip board now made available that 
would be a nifty board to make into a PDP11 if it comes out as cheap as 
they promise it to be.
