Trusted Ingenuity. Proven Reliability. ℠
INSPECTION AND AUTHENTICITY TESTING
Validate quality and integrity of your electronic components against approved devices and minimize risk to your supply chain with testing performed by the leading experts at IEC Electronics.
At IEC Electronics, we understand the high stakes of substandard electrical, electronic, and electromechanical (EEE) parts and remain vigilant in our responsibility to minimize your risk. Undetected substandard and counterfeit components pose one of the greatest threats plaguing the electronics manufacturing industry. Detection and avoidance are now crucial throughout the entire supply chain, including OEMs, OCMs, and independent distributors.
Whether you need one-time testing or fully integrated turn-key supply chain management as part of your EMS solution, IEC Electronics can test and inspect your components to meet your specifications.
From screening samples from a third-party vendor to creating a “known good” parts database, we will develop a custom risk mitigation plan and perform all testing in one facility.
Detection & Avoidance of counterfeit components
The experts at IEC Electronics have years of experience and training to detect even the subtlest signs of counterfeiting.
The increased focus on avoiding suspect components and introduction of DFARS regulations have caused counterfeiters to become more creative and develop more sophisticated forgery methods. We remain at the forefront of the industry and advance our expertise though our commitment to continuous education and our involvement in industry recognized organizations, such as GIDEP and ERAI.
Our multi-step verification process goes beyond standard surface and internal structure validation to assure counterfeit and substandard parts stay out of your supply chain.
We rely on our versatile and diverse toolset, including Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA), and Acoustic Microscope (CSAM), to perform a full construction analysis that meets and exceeds rigorous standards.
TESTING TO THE HIGHEST STANDARDS
Not all inspection, test, and authentication (IT&A) standards are the same. IEC Electronics is certified to test to the most detailed and rigorous standards. IEC Electronics is the only EMS with an on-site laboratory approved by the Defense Logistics Agency for their Qualified Testing Supplier List (QTSL) program.
