Some notes for Ver one... To gain some room on the board....
As suggested before....
Use only 4 wire rs232 with max232a/tr202, removing need for +-12v ( 3 to 4 chip saving)
Move to 8085, no need for +12 or -5v, less support chip needed... ( ~2 chip saving)
Make board stand alone, no other boards needed to make it run... ( plus 1 chip)
Fix upper address and data lines to bus issues . (Plus 2 chips)
Replace 8212's with 74als logic (~ 3 chip saving)
Replace ram chips with one larger chip, (wasting part of the chip to save room if needed) 64k x 8 or larger like an as6c4008 with a poor man's mmu if their room on board...(use output port?) like zeta board.... (~ plus 1 to 2 chip saving)
If room, allow room for a dip switch with pull-ups on input port.... (~ plus 1 chip)
Just my ideas from building the board....

Opps, thanks for letting me know... I guess it's a cut n paste error or just an over sight.
