1-Source Electronic Components Wages War on Counterfeit and Defective Electronic Components

PORT JEFFERSON STATION, NY--(Marketwire - August 11, 2009) - As widespread counterfeiting of electronic components continues to be a major problem, 1-Source Electronic Components, a leading electronic component distributor and supplier, has announced they are proactively fighting the war on counterfeit and defective electronic components with their subsidiary company, ChipChecker Ltd.

ChipChecker Ltd. was established in 2005 to give electronic component buyers a viable means of fighting component fraud. Since its inception, it has been taking an active lead in that field. Headquartered in Hong Kong and with an established operating office in the Futian District of Shenzhen, China, ChipChecker performs physical site visitations of vendor facilities in addition to product inspection.

"A majority of electronic components come from the Asia Pacific region, where many electronics hardware manufacturing companies have been relocating in recent decades," said Bruce R. MacArthur, COO for the 1-Source Group of Companies. "We headquartered ChipChecker in Hong Kong so we could ensure product quality and evaluate the components vendors/suppliers more easily, including verifying and/or inspecting their physical location."

By thoroughly inspecting electronic components at the source using their L-15 Inspection guidelines, the 1-Source Group of Companies ensures surplus product quality, and maximizes their customers' dollars for the best quality excess-surplus product in the world.

"We are your ally in the war on counterfeit and defective electronic components, and are ready to provide an extensive suite of material management services for buyers and engineers of electronic components for production and inventory purposes," said MacArthur. "We determine and/or verify the inspection, testing, packaging, shipping, sourcing, and any other requirements of our electronic components buyers to ensure they're getting only the very best."
