Warren has the Unix circuit Design system UCSD from research that Ken used for Belle in Unix/Ts aka V7 and v8. Rob and Bart L updated/replaced with something else for the bilt on plan 9 which was after me but the core was based on UCSD. Dan Cross might know more from plan 9 days and I can ask Presotto and Bart
Sent from my PDP-7 Running UNIX V0 expect things to be almost but not quite.

(It’s the original version before I worked with Mitch Bradley integrating it with CForth to replace its old icky extension language. Unfortunately I didn’t keep a copy of the source code and our CForth mods.)
