The article details how specific electrical testing can be used for counterfeit electronic component risk mitigation.
Joseph Federico wrote, “Electrical testing, the focus of this article, includes DC/AC functional and parametric testing over a range of operating temperatures. Electrical testing over temperature is the industry standard regarding testing the component device's functional and parametric requirements at the recommended manufacturers or specific industry extreme operating temperatures. This testing gives a much higher confidence level in determining the authenticity of a part.”
