Modifying an existing digital circuit:

Circuit A: 3V, low-going pulse, 500uSec every 200mSec
Circuit B: 3VDC thought to be sourced by a pull-up inside a microprocessor with OEM part number.

Need: Connect B to A when 3V logic level C is true (could be HI or LO; prefer HI).

When I use a jumper wire, the voltage level of the A:B join doesn't deteriorate the pulse and the effect of doing the connection does cause the microprocessor to take the correct action (change a valve from open to closed).

Constraint: This is all 1yr battery powered so the method needs to consume very little current. So no relay or LED-based opto-isolator will do.

Thanks in advance.

thanks...
is there a discrete component single-switch product around? Maybe TO92 or some such?

Try single-gate logic from TI, Fairchild, or On. Pretty sure there are some analog gates in a nice little SOT23 package.

Try BS108
A will pull B low, only when C is High.

thanks guys, a zillion.
The BS108 looks promising.
