Yes, and on second thought, the 3.5 V minimum supply voltage doesn't make
the use of FETs as bridge switchers exactly easy.
With the types of products I mostly work on, I rarely get to dive so deep
into how to employ single transistors :) It's quite interesting to follow
this development. Thanks for sharing -- and please keep the updates coming.
(How's that for a model of open source development? In a sense, that's
pretty much what is going on here...)
