The AtoD is in the D2808 chip, not the CPU.  This chip also has the
counters that handle the dwell/ignition.

Some of the CPU ports are used as are the CPU timers.  Have
fun with the HD6303 datasheet and an ohmmeter.

I'd prefer a Motorola CPU since the CPU bus will match that
of the HD6303...  and you could probably port the MAC11 code
a _lot_ easier than to a completely different architecture.

Well, maybe when I finish the LCD units.
