Counterfeit electronic parts are so difficult to detect that more than a million suspect counterfeit parts slipped past highly trained military inspectors and made their way into the defense supply chain. Senators John McCain and Carl Levin discuss counterfeit parts in this SHOCKING video. Watch it! Why counterfeits come from Positive response is NOT
an Effective Way to Select Good Suppliers!
No. Buyers leave positive response when parts look good and arrive on time and counterfeits often look better than authentic parts. Buyers may not realize they received counterfeits and suspect something else has gone wrong. Have you ever wondered why some sellers use names that are hard to remember? Sellers can change their name and emerge as a new company overnight, without losing previous positive response. (See FAQs the Big Deal if they are Counterfeit?
The prices are great!
Many counterfeits are refurbished from eScrap. Often they aren't even the same part. Counterfeits may be a different temperature range, speed grade, die revision, or manufacturer. Passives may be a completely different value, tolerance, voltage, or temperature coefficient. Refurbished parts often fail prematurely as processes often exceed absolute maximum ratings and do not utilize ESD controls. Counterfeit parts have been known to overheat, explode, and start fires when power is applied. Watch the Short Video: How to Avoid Counterfeit can I avoid Counterfeit Parts?

Counterfeit Part FAQs
Does it really matter if I buy a counterfeit part? All I need is a resistor.
Definitely Yes. Especially if the value, tolerance, or temperature coefficient matters. Counterfeit parts often do not meet the same specifications as authentic parts. Sometimes they are different parts or technologies altogether. You may purchase a 10K 1% thin film resistor and receive thick film part, or even a different value.
How widespread is the problem and is it ever safe to purchase electronic components online?
Buying electronic components online today is a lot like downloading software on the Internet. If you are know your source of supply, and your supplier is reputable you are probably safe, as long as your supplier has the knowledge, experience, and tools to detect counterfeit electronic components if his supplier ships them to him. But remember, much like downloading software, even safe suppliers can pass along problems if they do not have processes in place to safeguard your interest.
Which electronic components do Counterfeiters target?
Almost every component you can think of. Simple devices including capacitors, resistors, inductors, transistors, diodes, and some ICs are very easy to Counterfeit. More complex or proprietary parts are salvaged from heaps of eScrap and then sold as new. Microprocessors, memory, and programmable logic are frequently counterfeited.
Where do counterfeits come from?
Most counterfeit components come from regions of the worlds where anti-counterfeit laws do not exist or are not enforced by the authorities. The overwhelming majority of counterfeits come from China where counterfeiting has become a cottage industry. Small companies can make a fortune selling refurbishing parts from eScrap that masquerade as new parts. NEVER purchase parts that come from China. See Why.
Do companies really MAKE fake parts?
Offshore companies have manufactured GENERIC devices for years. Many people and businesses refuse to use these GENERIC parts because the failure and non-conformance rate is too high. They want the quality, reliability, and process control provided by major manufacturers. Counterfeiters have learned that they can make a huge profit from buying parts from these low-quality manufacturers and then re-mark them with the part numbers and logos of major manufacturers.
What about ICs that require sophisticated fabrication equipment and proprietary processes? Are they counterfeited too?
Absolutely. Many of these counterfeits are actually refurbished parts from eScrap. While there is nothing wrong with refurbishing electronic components, they must be represented as used and refurbished when sold, and can never be remarked to mislead unsuspecting customers. There are many reasons why you should not purchase and use refurbished parts, even if they do look new.
We use are extremely sophisticated parts that have a proprietary processes. Are they counterfeited too?
Absolutely, but these parts are usually salvaged from scrap boards. The components are removed, cleaned up, painted, and then remarked with date and lot codes that are consistent. These parts are also referred to Counterfeit because remarking violates the IP holder's trademark.
