Counterfeit prevention

Counterfeit products are entering the marketplace through increasingly sophisticated methods. These products jeopardize the entire supply chain and already cost the electronics industry many millions of dollars each year.

That is why Eptix Electronics offers lab services (IC de-capsulation and extensive testing) at no cost to any client that procures parts through Eptix.

You can procure through us with complete confidence that you will be getting the authentic parts you ordered! We also offer electrical testing at our partner's facility in New Jersey and Ottawa.

During the visual inspection process, we verify material authenticity by checking the manufacturer's labeling, device marking, package condition, lead or sphere condition and component test marks. Part marking verification and component inspection will validate compliance to the original component and industry specifications.
