Sources for Searching Old Electronic Parts Specs (Counterfeit Inspection)

Hello everyone,

I received a somewhat surprising request today.


Context: A production technician is instructed to verify that a piece received at the reception is not counterfeited. Moreover, this piece comes from a broker.
The technician looks for the specs on the internet (I am told that it is an old piece).
Collecting a spec on the internet, this spec is found infected with a virus. The incident adds to the already existing problems experienced in the supply of the part, etc.

We are asked (the Quality Department) to provide 3 "reliable" sites where technicians could pick up specs of electronic components, and if not found, rule would be set to put the part aside.

1) What are your impressions ?
2) Do you know web sites or resources of interest to fulfill such needs? Free?

We could previously use SiliconExpert system which could give some information about counterfeit electronic parts I believe but a genius in the business has decided not to renew the license.

Under most International Standards (ISO 9001, AS9100, etc.) you are require control of external documents used by the organization. If your source of supply (free off the internet) is putting your organization at risk, how much will it cost once your company if its network is infected by a ransom virus.

[FONT=&quot]Tell your genius in the business the type problems you are having and highlight the risk he or she is placing the company in to just save a little money.[/FONT]

1. Not really sure how a specs is able to help you figure if a part is counterfeit or not.
2. Purchase products from reliable brokers or suppliers and as part of that process - ask them to certified the product as not counterfeit.
3. If the product is military - there are other sites to get the information.
