I ordered the PCB for this project a while ago, I’ve been gathering up the parts over the last couple of months, and so almost ready to begin assembling. When it’s all together and finished, I can plug in a VGA or HDMI display, connect up a PS/2 or USB keyboard, and I’ll have myself a serial terminal AKA dumb terminal. I’m old enough to have used the last of DEC’s venerable VT line up in the early-mid 90’s, so there is definitely the nostalgia factor at play with wanting to set one of these up!…
