I'm not very good at keeping record of my circuits. I just tend to make them by ear. When I do make schematics for anything, though, I'll put them here. What is here doesn't represent the whole 8080 system, it's only a very small portion of it. A lot of the circuits can be guessed by reading the datasheets. This is what I do most of the time.
