ERAI Offers Enhanced High Risk and Suspect Counterfeit Parts Data

Anne-Liese Heinichen
ERAI, Inc.

At ERAI, we are constantly evolving and finding ways to better serve our Members. We have expanded the data that is presented to you in our High Risk and Suspect Counterfeit Parts Database. Along with the standard report categories and nonconformance description, Members can now see the components’ type and a new section cross referencing alerts issued for similar parts.

For each part report in the database, ERAI has collected the component type (e.g. analog IC, memory IC, microprocessor); however, it was previously not displayed in the parts’ report. The component type field now displays in the part report directly under the manufacturer’s brand name.

Below the date reported field, you will now see a section of three cross references:

1. Number of alerts for this part number:  Displays the total number of reports for this exact part number contained in the ERAI High Risk and Suspect Counterfeit Parts Database. In the example report above, this part has been reported six (6) times to ERAI.

2. Number of alerts for this manufacturer brand:  This shows the total number of reports contained in the ERAI High Risk and Suspect Counterfeit Parts Database for the same manufacturer’s brand. In other words, in the example, there are 192 other parts bearing this manufacturer’s brand that were reported to ERAI.

3. Number of alerts for this component type:  This field displays the number of reported part alerts in ERAI’s database for parts of the same component type. In this case, there are 1496 reported parts that are categorized as memory ICs.

We hope these cross references will enable our Members to make more informed decisions during their counterfeit mitigation processes.
