Winner, Name that Ware July 2017

The ware for July 2017 is a PMT (photomultiplier tube) module. I’d say wrm gets the prize this month, for getting that it’s a PMT driver first, and for linking to a schematic. :) That’s an easy way to win me over. Gratz, email me to claim your prize!

The Ware for June 2017 is an ultrasonic delay line. Picked this beauty up while wandering the junk shops of Akihabara.

Grats to plum33 for nailing it! email me for your prize.

The Ware for May 2017 is the “Lorentz and Hertz” carriage board from an HP Officejet Pro 8500. Congrats to MegabytePhreak for nailing both the make and model of the printer it came from! email me for your prize.

I found the name of the board to be endearing.
