[sdiy] low supply voltage dual opamp ??? solved..

Sometimes you can do a search online and find a marking number. I've 
done this with SMT components that have codes rather than part numbers.

It gets frustrating. The stuff gets so small they don't mark them at 
all. If you drop an SMT cap you have to write it off because they are 
not marked at all. And when SMT chips are marked they use laser etching 
(I guess) that is very hard to read. Long gone are the days of 1 watt 
resistors with big clear color bands. Now you get little 1/8 watters and 
the colors are milky and you cannot tell if its red or orange.

Then you get big company A buying out big company B and magically all 
the really cool info in the datasheets get cut out, for reasons I cannot 
fathom. I used to have a massive library of data books. Then the 
internet came along and I got rid of most of them because I could just 
look it up. But now a lot of that stuff is gone. I still have a Linear 
Applications Handbook for that very reason.
