    Not a teacher.

    Yes, "but ... as well" sound OK to me.

    There seem to be a lot of such words in that sentence.

    I don't think you need the "also."

    And the engineer in me knows that tristate need not imply unidirectionality, so I'm not sure why there is a need for the "but" at all.

    Maybe just say "the devices are both tristate and bidirectional."?
