Default Finding the Manufacturer of a driver

I recall happening upon a site where one could determine the manufacturer of a driver and the year it was made. I can't find that site now. I was hoping that someone might be able to direct me to a site that provides this information.

Thanks,

J

Thanks for your response. I am attempting to interpret the following:

PT82-7909

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Jay

Pictures of the driver would help.

The number is much like those on some Pioneers, i'd guess made in Sptember (or early March) 1979. The EIA codes mostly cover US manufacturers. Pionner most likely got their drivers built by any one of the 3 major OEMs (Foster, Coral, Panasonic/Matsushita)

Thanks.

The EU in the number struck a note. I guess that was it (as opposed to European Union).
