Join the SMTA Capital Chapter’s June Meeting and Counterfeit Component Presentation

May 23, 2012

The SMTA Capital Chapter is pleased to invite you to the upcoming SMTA meeting at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab on June 20, 2012 from 5:00 pm until 7:15 pm. During this second meeting of 2012, Tom O’Connor, DFR Solutions, will present a paper on the topic of counterfeit components.

The presentation addresses the unique sources of counterfeit components and provides insight into how they occur. Counterfeit components are a rapidly growing area of concern. The Department of Commerce has identified a 141% increase in the last three years alone! Counterfeit parts are no longer an emerging threat: they’re real and they’re here to stay. A counterfeit is any item that is not as it is represented with the intention to deceive its buyer or user. The misrepresentation is often driven by the known presence of defects or other inadequacies with regard to performance. 

Whether it is used for a commercial, medical or military application, a counterfeit component can cause catastrophic failure at a critical time. Detection methodologies, such as visual inspection, mechanical robustness, X-Ray, XRF, C-SAM, Infrared Thermography, electrical characterization, decapsulation, and marking evaluations will be compared and contrasted. Multiple examples of counterfeit parts identified using these techniques will be highlighted.

The evening is scheduled as follows:

5:00-5:45 pm Registration and Networking
5:45-6:15 pm Dinner
6:15-7:00 pm Presentation “Counterfeit Components”
7:00-7:15 pm Q&A
