This is *very* interesting !
Especially the pnp pair (which one of the two is it ?).
This might be the key to build expo converters for 3080's, or even
without matching transistors - hey, if they are SMD, that's at least no
for *this* application ...
I saw it listed at RS Components, too. DM 2,- (one dollar), but still ok if
they are what we think they are.
There is no description, not even that it is a dual type, just the number
Do you have more details ?
