PiDP-8/I: RECREATING THE PDP-8/I
The PiDP-8/I is a modern replica of the 1968 PDP-8/I computer. So far, more than 3,000 have been built - coming close to the production numbers for the real PDP-8/I (about 3800...)
It's open-source hardware, so schematics, design files & software are available here. As long as my stock of custom 'replica' switches lasts, I am also producing kits. There are large volume discounts on some of the other parts, so group ordering parts for a kit makes sense.
The sections to the left describe the PiDP in more detail. The web already contains lots of PDP-8 information, so these pages focus on the practical PiDP aspects: how to build & operate a PiDP-8 and importantly, what on earth to do with it...
