Re: Ultimate DIY debugger award/IT IS OVER!
I took a look at a National data book. The National chip doesn't have a "protection" transistor like the Q18 in Motorola. The National is different from the Texas in that in the Texas the ballance pins connect to a ~1K resistor to ground and the emitter of a transistor, while in the National they connect to a 100R resistor to ground and a 2K resistor to the emitter of the transistor. So the National works, but maybe the original Texas works better.
