The extent of component counterfeiting can be staggering when you think about it:
- Unmarked refurbished units
- Salvaged components dressed up to look new
- Illegal clones or second-run components
- Tainted components manufactured with malicious hidden features
If non-authentic components have made their way into your production line, then each such situation represents a unique set of potentially life-threatening risks and vulnerabilities even beyond cost and schedule slippage. Today, thanks to the developers at Corelis, Inc., the good guys have a new anti-counterfeiting weapon in their arsenal: the JTAG Interrogator.
