Counterfeit Parts

Military Grade Ceramic Counterfeit Electronic Component

By August 12, 2010No Comments

These parts were received at AERI in August 2010.  They are a hermetic ceramic package that has been sanded down and resurfaced to disguise something (see directional sanding marks under top coat).  We are suprised to see counterfeiters altering military grade parts since they are likely to be used in life threatening devices like planes, missiles, etc.
