  Electrically speaking the front panel is not anything like a PDP-8 front
panel; probably the most practical way to connect it to a PDP-8/A would
be to design a new circuit board and just keep the front panel plastic
that I've made. You can buy the front panel plastic alone if you want to
undertake such a project.

  The SBC6120 does have an expansion bus, but it's not OMNIBUS. A SBC6120
to OMNIBUS interface is possible, but it would take a little work. It's
all open source, though, so feel free!
