Effective and efficient operation of nuclear power plants relies on a
network of key suppliers of products and services. Ongoing assessment of
these suppliers is key to ensuring a supplier meets all requirements.
The recent and severe semiconductor shortage has sparked renewed interest in semiconductor date codes,
a method to measure the “freshness” of electronic components. Many
manufacturers will not accept chips with expired date codes even if they
pass various tests, further restricting semiconductor supplies.
The global chip shortage is in the rear-view mirror, but the electronics
supply chain is far from stable. The industry still struggles with
supply chain disruptions, the possibility of trade wars, regulatory challenges and the fluctuating demand for semiconductors.
The issue of
counterfeit components is a prevalent one that continues to plague the
electronics industry. Counterfeiting costs U.S.-based semiconductor

risks to both industry integrity and consumer safety.
The concept of supply chain security holds significant weight in
today's global business landscape. To understand the dynamics and
challenges involved, it's essential to explore the current state of the
global supply chain, including shifting trust levels and transparency
