The CPU itself is a standard off the shelf WE32200, which is thankfully very well documented, so the ISA is not really an issue. The real thorny question is how everything else is all hooked together. The interrupt controller, the IO buses, the DRAM controller, and so on, are partly documented in the technical reference manual, but only at a very high level, and with at least a few major inaccuracies. Detailed behavior like bus timeouts, error conditions, and so on, are very poorly documented. I was only able to infer how everything was connected on the 3B2/400 by reading the kernel source code to understand what the various drivers expected to see, but the 3B2/700 has a very different memory map and the kernel source code is missing. I have the system board schematics, but there an awful lot of PALs, and no PAL truth tables.
