There have been a lot of discussions about driver chips for Qbus
and Unibus here over the years, usually ending in frustration. Has
anyone tried to just do it with discretes? Nice little general-
purpos SOT-23 transistors, both bipolar and MOSFETs, are available
cheaply. Just a few days ago I bought a partial reel of 2N7002s,
just short of three thousand parts, for thirty bucks, and 1200
2N3904s for $10. What would it take to do this with 2N7002s,
2N3904s, or 2N3906s?
