Low side solenoid drivers

If this is a one off or small volume application you can do this very
cheaply (very possibly most cheaply) using 4 discrete transistors.
Suitably rated TO92 transistors probably cost a few 10's of cents each if
that. A TO220 pkg may be advisable if you have long on times.
