I wonder how many companies themselves are actually already implementing counterfeit components into their systems before this rule came along. You never know when these companies are trying to undercut the market and slice off the corners here and there just to make a quick buck. Hopefully the government will have a proper way to deal with these jokers with this new rule!

IEEE Std. 1149.1 and anti-counterfeiting

Dear Peter, I enjoyed reading your blog.   It looks to me that the IEEE has tried to do something about counterfeit ICs in their latest IEEE 1149.1-2013 standard.  I read this on IEEE Today's engineer about a on-chip ECID, Electronic Chip Identification which, if specified by the buyer ( and perhaps DoD) would mitigate counterfeit or re-marked parts. http://www.todaysengineer.org/2013/Jun/ic-counterfeiting-IEEE-1149-1-2013.asp Seems like an easy way to meet the DoD rule for having a process in place to mitigate counterfeits.  The IEEE seems to be goiing after the DoD expanded definiion of counterfeits that you cite.  The ECID, Electronic Chip ID, includes IC grading information such as temperature grade, speed grades, date codes, pass/fail information which is stored on-chip at time of manufacturer.  This would thwart any one trying to re-mark a part as something different than is what is in the die.  And the technique to read the information out proposes to be easy/low-cost.Sincerely,John

I was just wondering so much have been discussed on counterfeit across various forums, is there any well regulated and traceable effort being planned to combat counterfeit. Like if I am a simple small time electronics business guy and if some of the elctronics components that I get regularly have defects or I suspect are counterfeited, what should and must I do other than just complaining to the distributor.

These new rules are really necessary with more and more electronics are being used in defense equipment. The companies supplying subassemblies will have a big challenge to build counterfeit system. These systems require much more than simple inspection such as equipments, sample testing etc.

Haily, it was filed May 15, 2013, Two months, not one month, time. It can be enforced via DoD regulations, guidance, etc. I would add "counterfeiting" as another risk to be considered in addition to supplier defaulting, political and social issues, and supply chain disruption.

This strikes me as a quick turaround for this kind of requirement--with the deadline for comments only a month away. Of course, counterfit parts are a problem, and cause broad issues in the supply chain. At the same time, this type of ruling always leaves me asking "How will this be enforced?" and "How will this affect smaller organizations?".  Often, these sorts of requirements fail to address both of these issues.

That would be fantastic. Yes ofcourse if counterfeit components are found, contractors must pay for it. But would this rule also apply for private companies? When you deal with Government, its very easy to set these kind of rules and also easy to ahere to it. But good portion of the counterfeit business is also in non defense or private sector. Counterfeit is a global problem, its time these kind of rules apply across all electronics business.
