Have Suspect Counterfeit ESD Packaging & Materials Infiltrated the Aerospace & Defense Supply Chain?

April 14, 2016

 

Over the past several years, U.S. based organizations have sacrificed the traditional “internal auditing process” with reliance upon contract manufacturers, distributors and suppliers to do the right thing. To compound the problem, organizations have accepted supplier specifications as adequate proof in qualifying a product for use. The inspection of ESD sensitive devices or EEE parts is very important, but without special safeguards, the additional handling to remove and repack a product for validation can cause both physical and ESD damage in the process. For electronic ESD sensitive components, including those not sensitive to static electricity, measures must be utilized to detect, inspect and validate the packaging as well as incoming EEE parts.  Read on and learn more about why "assuming" the protective packaging as a "Visual Inspection Process" can no longer be relied upon for compliance.
