Winner, Name that Ware March 2019

The ware for March 2019 is the photoflash unit from a Canon IXY10S camera. I’ll go with Roger Gammans as the winner, for being the first to correctly note the manufacturer. Congrats, email me for your prize! I do find it interesting that different manufacturers can have recognizable styles; every designer leaves a thumbprint in the subtle choices that must be made to navigate a huge decision tree of trade-offs.

Also, I love that the IGBT in that device is rated for 150 amps. :) Of course, the rating is just for a very short pulse, but still, it’s in a TSSOP-8 package!
