|Counterfeit Risk Identification through Inspection|
|Keywords: Counterfeit detection, Inspection tools and methods, Conformance|
|Counterfeit electronics have been reported in a wide range of products, including computers, telecommunications equipment, automobiles, avionics and military systems. Counterfeit electronic products include everything from very inexpensive capacitors and resistors to costly microprocessors to servers. In general, it is best to avoid counterfeit electronic parts through supply chain management tools. In cases when some parts are not procured through ideal channels, one line of defense is the incoming inspection of parts. We present a multi tier method of conformance verification and inspection of electronic parts for counterfeit detection. The conformance verification step is conducted in collaboration with the electronic part manufacturer. The inspection steps become progressively detailed starting from the part paperwork, packing, marking and may continue to destructive physical examination. We will provide examples of such detection of counterfeit parts made by our team to show the efficacy of the process and the rooms for improvement in the process.|
