The electronics industry is facing a dilemma—counterfeit parts from disreputable suppliers.
To combat this disturbing trend, North Shore Components provides comprehensive counterfeit detection to various segments of the electronics industry. We have worked with defense contractors, government agencies, and many other companies in the electronics sector to ensure they are using authentic and safe components.
As counterfeiters become increasingly proficient, the counterfeit mitigation industry has evolved to the point that there is no single fool-proof method used to detect counterfeit components. As soon as the supply chain learns a new method of detecting fake components, counterfeiters change the game. The channel has since deadlocked with neither side willing to give an inch. Common sense dictates that an organization’s fight against procuring and distributing counterfeit components needs a systematic approach and must involve all aspects of the supply chain from the supplier to the end-user.
Engineers agree there is no “one-size-fits-all” plan for counterfeit testing components. At the end of the day you need a counterfeit mitigation partner who will be standing beside you from start to finish. Our electrical engineers work with your quality team to help define a plan, or modify your current plan, in order to meet your counterfeit mitigation objectives. North Shore Components believes you should get exactly what you need and pay the right price for it.
