Anti Counterfeit Procedures

Electronic component and material inspections are vital to our quality management system.

To ensure quality products for our customers, our IDEA-ICE-3000 certified inspectors perform a 72-point, two stage component inspection on 100% incoming materials with an additional stage that is for visual reference.
