Buying counterfeit semiconductors is a risky business



We distribute Rochester Electronics products in EMEA, Mexico and Brazil.

Semiconductors are the core to electronic systems used in high reliability markets such as industrial, transportation, military, medical, energy, civil aviation, automotive, and telecommunications. Counterfeit and substandard products introduce major risk to the health, safety and security of people around the world.

Rochester Electronics co-founded SIA's Anti-Counterfeiting Task Force 

In 2006, Rochester Electronics launched a comprehensive anti-counterfeit awareness campaign exposing the risks of counterfeit and substandard products. Rochester initiated the formation of the Semiconductor Industry Association's [SIA] Anti-Counterfeiting Task Force (ACTF) and is an active participant promoting best procurement practices combating counterfeit and substandard products.

Ways to Avoid Counterfeit & Substandard Products:

Only buy products from authorized distributors or licensed manufacturers.
Purchase from a provider that carries a full warranty for performance, quality and reliability.
Ensure the provider complies with quality certifications as appropriate to the sale of the final product.
