Abstract

The Society of Aerospace Engineers (SAE) AS6171 Aerospace Standard standardizes the test and inspection procedures, workmanship criteria, and minimum training and certification requirements to detect counterfeit electrical, electronic, and electromechanical parts. The standard comes in response to a significant and increasing volume of counterfeit electrical, electronic, and electromechanical parts entering the supply chain. This short manuscript and its accompanying talk update the audience on the risk based methodology for detecting potential counterfeiting related defects. The techniques that are discussed in AS6171 slash sheet include film radiography and filmless radiography such as digital radiography, real time radiography, and computed tomography. The analysis is performed on parts to verify that the internal package or die construction is consistent with an exemplar item. AS6171 will provide the counterfeit detection community with standardized test and inspection procedures, workmanship criteria, and minimum training and certification requirements to detect counterfeit electrical, electronic, and electromechanical parts.
