Saelig Rolls Out ABI Sentry Counterfeit IC Detector Print E-mail

ABI Sentry counterfeit IC detector uses a combination of electronic parameter settings (voltage, frequency, source resistance and waveform) to generate a PinPrint for each pin of the IC being checked. Compares electrical signature of known components with suspect components. Can detect missing or incorrect dies, lack of bond wires, inaccurate pin-outs and pin impedance variations. Pass or fail results are returned after testing. Device library can be built by adding specific known good devices. Each device can have documents associated with it, such as photos of device markings and data sheets. Contains hardware required to analyze electrical characteristics of ICs with up to 256 pins. 256 pins+ devices can be tested by rotating the device (BGA, QFP) to permit all pins to be learned and compared. Is supplied with four 48-pin dual inline zero insertion force sockets. Weighs 8 lbs.

Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.

The Human Touch

For those who count on the electronics industry for big feats, it’s been a remarkable couple of years.
