RTL Logic

 Most of these were designed such that a single
output pullup resistor didn't use all of the
sink of an output transistor. This means that
two outputs tied together and would not draw too much
 DTL does the same thing and allows the wired AND.
 As I recall, with RTL, you only needed to apply
power to one device if they were inverters
since there was no other active logic,
like flops.

>I don't see how doing a wired-and is possible when RTL includes a pullup
resistor on each output. You would get to a point where an individual output
transistor would not be capable of sinking all the "low" current.
