I am toying with the idea of building an Intel 8085 demonstration/study kit which would consist of an Intel 8085 microprocessor on a PCB, where all input nodes (including the clock X1, X2) would be connected to switches and the output nodes would be connected to LEDs. The user would then manually simulate the memory step-by-step by using the switches and storing the data on paper.
My question is whether this would be feasible. In particular, can the 8085 handle a "clock" signal that is activated by hand, i.e. very very low and irregular frequency? Moreover for the bidirectional bus, what would be a good design to keep the read and write modes? And is there anything that I should be especially aware of, or that may easily go wrong?
