CONCERNED ABOUT COUNTERFEIT CAPACITORS OR CAPACITOR QUALITY?

Though they may look like the real thing, counterfeit electronic parts will not perform reliably and, if undetected, could cause catastrophic failure at a critical moment in commercial, medical or military applications. Counterfeiters are getting better, and many of the current non-destructive techniques – visual inspection, mechanical robustness, X-Ray, XRF, C-SAM, Infrared Thermography, electrical characterization, decapsulation and marking evaluations – may not be able to identify real components from fakes. The infiltration of counterfeit parts into electronics design is a growing concern as demand increases for reducing production costs.
