Detecting counterfeit-marked components.

December 15, 2014 // By Joe Federico, Njmet
The fight against counterfeit electronic components requires many different tools in our arsenal. The sophistication of some counterfeits requires that we use multiple test methods to differentiate the counterfeit from the authentic. We need to be careful when selecting the tests to use for a specific component. Use of the wrong testing procedures for the type of component can result in false positives, incorrectly identifying authentic parts as counterfeit.
