Buyer Beware:

Avoid the Disaster of the Counterfeit Market with SiliconExpert Proactive Alerts

Protect the Integrity of Your Company

Organizations like the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) of the U.S. and Europe, Government-Industry Data Exchange Program (GIDEP) and the Electronic Resellers Association International (ERAI) are working to develop anti-counterfeiting standards and specifications; however, because too many of these standards depend on identifying counterfeits, and identification methods are aimed at constantly moving targets, everyone agrees that the best solution is still to follow the “golden rule” of semiconductor purchasing: Always purchase directly from the manufacturer or from the manufacturer’s authorized dealer. Traceability is paramount.

Knowledge is Power

SiliconExpert offers a SaaS solution that provides the readily available, sophisticated, relevant, and up-to-the-minute data that buyers need in order to remove the risk of counterfeit components.

Through a SiliconExpert BOM analysis, customers can learn which components are the likeliest to be counterfeited and which are at high risk for product change notification (PCN) and end-of-life (EOL). They can also confirm the reliability of multiple sources. Information is updated faster than at any other source. Customers can access information at any time and can even set up automated alerts.
