Whether you are an OEM or an independent distributor buying on the open market, undetected substandard and counterfeit parts pose one of the biggest risks to your business. Counterfeit electronic component detection, via quality and authenticity inspections and tests, mitigates the extensive risks posed by substandard parts including excessive re-procurement costs, delays in time to market, and damage to your company’s reputation.

That’s where Advanced Component Testing comes in. We perform a series of counterfeit component detection tests to ensure all parts meet your quality standards, while identifying potentially counterfeit products in the process.
