Counterfeit Detection in the Electronics Industry
Keywords: Counterfiet electronics, Counterfeit detection, Visual Inspection
Counterfeit components in the electronics industry are becoming a serious threat to our economy and our safety. This presentation will discuss the sources of counterfeit electronic components, how these parts enter the supply chain and some statistics which highlight the severity of the problem. Two standards have been published to help deter counterfeit devices; IDEA-STD-1010-A – Independent Distributor of Electronics – “Acceptability of Electronic Components Distributed in the Open Market; Revision A, October, 2006” and SAE AS5553 – “Counterfeit Electronic Parts; Avoidance, Detection, Mitigation, and Disposition, Issued 2009-04”. Counterfeit detection methods include non-destructive tests, internal imaging, destructive tests and electrical parametric testing. In order to minimize the risk of counterfeit components, a company should implement Risk Mitigation Policies.
