ESD-certified, NexGen Digital acts as an industry watchdog for military contractors, providing a documented, vital line of defense against supply constraint and counterfeit parts
IRVINE, Calif., June 21, 2011 – NexGen Digital Inc. has expanded its industry-leading counterfeit detection services by investing further in equipment designed to verify and authenticate original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and contract manufacturer devices. This is helping NexGen Digital’s military contractors and the military branches it serves prevent counterfeit parts.
On June 16, CNN explored the nefarious issue of counterfeit goods coming out of China, including parts in missile guidance systems and microprocessors in F-15 flight controls. One study by the U.S. General Accounting Office reported that counterfeit parts could account for as much as 40 percent of the Pentagon supply chain, according to the CNN story. In the televised piece, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) called upon U.S. contractors to ensure the authenticity of semiconductors and components before purchasing them.
“We offer global contractors one of the most rigid in-house laboratory systems available for anti-counterfeit detection,” said Lisa Taylor, chief executive officer, NexGen Digital. “Our modern testing lab and warehouse features robust systems to test and validate the authenticity of electronic devices. When OEMs and global contract manufacturers must ensure the authenticity of components, they turn to NexGen Digital.
