Altair: Intel 8080 CPU
ELF: RCA 1802 CPU
Those CPUs are totally different.. and that's just the beginning.

I believe the 1802 architecture is very far from the 8080 /8085. Actually, I think it's very far from pretty much any other processor.

.. but an interesting one nevertheless. I'm pondering building the 'Membership Card' COSMAC ELF-in-an-Altoids-tin. Switches and lights but nearly no current draw with lights off.

Definitely! The combination would be interesting as well- an s100 1802 card?
