Counterfeiting has become somewhat prevalent these days, more so in some industries than in others. If there is a profit to be made, this hidden market will find it. When it comes to electronic components, especially in the electronics arena where reliability is involved, there is a deep concern that what you produce as a final product is not compromised in either design or manufacturing. This outcome requires an understanding of the implications of counterfeit components and how you can develop plans to prevent inferior materials from entering your supply chain.
