Countering Counterfeiting in the Electronics Industry – Examples from a specialised Counterfeit Analysis Laboratory
Dr. Peter Gordon and Dr. Tamas Hurtony

Due to the global chip- and component shortage, assembling manufacturers of electronic products have to look for alternative sources of components. This opens doors towards the grey area broker companies. A large number of counterfeit components are present on the market and these may be distributed despite the best intention of the parties.

There are multiple levels of the counterfeit status. For example, a batch of expired components can be reintroduced onto the market after some form of relabeling. On the other end of the scale, even completely different chips may be encapsulated in the package. And between these extremes, there are numerous fine signs which when identified, could prove that a component is not identical with its original version.

During the past years, our Counterfeit Analysis Laboratory has completed thousands of counterfeit analysis cases in order to qualify components considered doubtful by our Customers. In the webinar we present a few interesting case studies from our work. The webinar will be thoroughly illustrated with photos and data provided by advanced failure analysis equipment.

Join us to reveal the clues and take a deep dive into the investigation!
