Counterfeit electronics pose serious economic, national security, and safety threats, while reports of counterfeits have soared dramatically in recent years. This presents huge challenges for electronics manufacturing at a time when the United States has created strict new regulations for the detection and avoidance of counterfeit electronic parts.
In the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal 2012, the U.S. now requires that members at all tiers of its global defense supply chain put in place systems and processes to address counterfeits. It’s not exclusively a U.S. concern. The regulation and its mandatory flow down requirements will impact international companies participating in global defense and electronics value chains.
If matters couldn’t be more challenging, the semiconductor industry’s infamous silicone cycle is forecasted to enter into growth period in 2012 characterized by extended lead times, higher prices, and potential shortages – a vulnerable situation for counterfeiting to take off.
