SMTA Announces New West Coast Location for Counterfeit Electronic Parts Symposium

Feb 12, 2010

Minneapolis, MN - SMTA and CALCE @ University of Maryland are pleased to announce a west coast venue for the Symposium on Avoiding, Detecting, and Preventing Counterfeit Electronic Parts.

Abstracts for presentations are now being accepted through April 9, 2010.

Going beyond anecdotes and examples of counterfeit parts, this symposium focuses on the solutions that are available and are under development by all sectors of the industry.

Topics will include:

  • Electronic parts supply chain

  • Sources of counterfeit parts
