World Micro Adds to Specialized Counterfeit Detection Equipment
Date:1/17/2012

ATLANTA, Jan. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- World Micro, Inc., announced today that it has purchased and installed additional specialized equipment to test electronic components headed for commercial and military applications. World Micro already has a world-class quality lab fitted with state-of-the-art equipment capable of performing X-Ray, X-RF analysis, and component solderability testing to identify parts suspected of being counterfeit or simply out-of-spec.

In addition to its other procedures used  to help spot counterfeit components, the company added "heated solvent" testing to its quality assurance process. World Micro now also uses a specialized heating unit, which through the addition of a special solvent can reveal parts which have been "blacktopped" – a technique used by many counterfeiters to obscure a part's true marking and allow it to be remarked, often to indicate a higher grade or more expensive component. To date, only a small number of independent distributors are known to use this advanced technique in the U.S.

In practice, World Micro uses at least three tests to identify components that have been resurfaced. 1. A marker permanency test that uses alcohol to wash the part's surface, 2. An acetone test that uses a more chemically aggressive way of testing the part, and 3. A scrape test that as its name implies, is performed with a bladed instrument to determine whether or not a part has been blacktopped. As counterfeiters of electronic components continue to evolve their methods to avoid detection, many parts now have coatings of cured urethanes, silicones, or special epoxies, which in many cases will withstand the already rigorous resurfacing tests.

"We are now able to penetrate blacktopped surfaces that may be thought impervious to testing and detection," said Gary Becks
