The Holistic Approach to Anti-Counterfeiting
Counterfeit electronic components have a high failure rate and pose a serious threat to life and to national security. Because of the risk, government and industry organizations have spent a considerable amount of time and resources identifying and combatting this worldwide problem. Despite these efforts, counterfeit and substandard device activity continues to climb.
The industry needs to better understand what products counterfeiters are targeting, and the methods they are using to produce these substandard devices. Currently, approved counterfeit detection standards are all visual in nature. While these methods are extensive, they cannot guarantee the performance and long-term reliability of a product. Only product test programs from the original semiconductor manufacturer can determine authorized product conformity.
The bottom line is to mitigate counterfeit activity through a meticulous supply chain process that delivers complete component source and availability information. The webinar focuses on how this can be accomplished.
This Webinar will discuss the detection and prevention of counterfeiting including:
- Targets and methods of counterfeiting
- Current detection measures
- Anti-counterfeiting best practices
Who should attend?
- Component suppliers: distribution and sales management
- OEM procurement
- EMS procurement
