[sdiy] Unity Gain Diff-in Diff-out driver

Hi Neil,

It is to act as a buffer, hiZ in low Z out and unity gain. Yeah, 2 basic voltage followers would do it, but I expect the preceding circuit won’t be outputting an equal amplitude signal with ref to 0V, but I expect the driver to output to be equal and opposite. If that makes sense.

I apologise for the late response. With all the crazy shit going on in the world, I spent 3 days travelling to get out of India before they closed the airports (I got to Delhi in time for the last flight to Sydney on Saturday). I’m now in isolation in Perth, I didn’t quite get home though - I guess this is my new home for the next few months.
