For many years, the Electronic Industry has been plagued with intrusions of Counterfeit Components into the Supply Chain. This problem has steadily continued and the frequency of intrusions have increased over the years. As the Counterfeit Mitigation techniques improved so did the counterfeiters’ technologies.
