SAE International has just published AS6171 – Test Methods Standard; General Requirements, Suspect/Counterfeit, Electrical, Electronic and Electromechanical Parts. According to SAE, the standard was developed to, “provide uniform requirements, practices and methods for testing EEE parts to mitigate the risks of receiving or using SC [suspect/counterfeit] EEE parts.”

AS6171 was developed and released by SAE International’s G-19Ca Test Laboratory Standards Development Committee, chartered in part to ensure consistency for test techniques and requirements throughout the global electronics supply chain. The standard consists of a master document and 11 accompanying slash sheets outlining test method requirements, each of which must be purchased separately. The slash sheets include:

  • AS6171 Test Methods Standard; General Requirements, Suspect/Counterfeit, Electrical, Electronic, and Electromechanical Parts
  • AS6171/1 Suspect/Counterfeit Test Evaluation Method
  • AS6171/2 Techniques for Suspect/Counterfeit EEE Parts Detection by External Visual Inspection, Remarking and Resurfacing, and Surface Texture Analysis Test Methods
  • AS6171/3 Techniques for Suspect/Counterfeit EEE Parts Detection by X-ray Fluorescence Test Methods
  • AS6171/4 Techniques for Suspect/Counterfeit EEE Parts Detection by Delid/Decapsulation Physical Analysis Test Methods
  • AS6171/5 Techniques for Suspect/Counterfeit EEE Parts Detection by Radiological Test Methods
  • AS6171/6 Techniques for Suspect/Counterfeit EEE Parts Detection by Acoustic Microscopy (AM) Test Methods
  • AS6171/7 Techniques for Suspect/Counterfeit EEE Parts Detection by Electrical Test Methods
  • AS6171/8 Techniques for Suspect/Counterfeit EEE Parts Detection by Raman Spectroscopy Test Methods
  • AS6171/9 Techniques for Suspect/Counterfeit EEE Parts Detection by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) Test Methods
  • AS6171/10 Techniques for Suspect/Counterfeit EEE Parts Detection by Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) Test Methods
  • AS6171/11 Techniques for Suspect/Counterfeit EEE Parts Detection by Design Recovery Test Methods
The standard is available for purchase from SAE at http://standards.sae.org/as6171/.
