Counterfeit Risk Algorithm

SiliconExpert's Counterfeit Risk Algorithm measures the likelihood of this part being targeted by counterfeiters. This analysis is made through rigorous data analysis of factors such as previous instances of counterfeit activity for this manufacturer, product & technology type, historical supply chain shortages, lifecycle history, product longevity in the market and price discrepancies.

GIDEP Alerts

The Government Industry Data Exchange Program, or GIDEP, periodically releases reports regarding the emergence of counterfeits.By reporting known counterfeit issues, GIDEP alerts can help prevent the recirculation of items suspected to be counterfeit within the supply chain. Cross-referencing a GIDEP-suspected counterfeit part with your current inventory can be a time-consuming and error-prone affair. SiliconExpert can organize the information in the GIDEP alert at a part number level, filtering out any data which doesn’t pertain to parts currently in use or on order by the manufacturer.

Part Marking

SiliconExpert's Part Marking images allow users to easily compare & authenticate components. Users within the same group can flag components for counterfeit issues while including relevant data points such as lot codes & cage codes.
