How to Recognize Fraudulent and Counterfeit Electronic Parts

Counterfeit electronic parts and components have become a serious issue for the electronics industry. Counterfeit components are devices that are intentionally misrepresented as authentic. They are marked or re- marked as something they are not. The counterfeit category also includes components that have been previously used and are sold as new devices. A more precise definition goes like this: A counterfeit component is a device made or altered to resemble an authentic part with the intent to mislead or defraud by presenting the imitation as original or genuine. These unreliable and fraudulent parts not only can cause significant inconveniences when…
