IMSAI 8080 CPU card replacement

Hi Andrew,

Just thought you would like to see what I've done on one of your prototyping boards.

It's a replacement CPU card for an IMSAI 8080.  It uses an 8080A and has the 16 pin socket to connect to the Front Panel.
I put 64K of RAM on the same card and a PIC microcontroller to provide Serial I/O, Floppy Disk emulation on a 8Meg flash chip and a Boot strap program.
It can boot up into CP/M 1.4 all on the same card.  I did this because many of the other cards of that era are flakey and I wanted to get the IMSAI 8080 computer at the PC Museum in Brantford, Ontario working.

If anyone wants the full schematic & firmware, just let me know where to upload it.
