HOLON, Israel

Optimal+ Director of Business Development, Yaacov De Russo, will present at the Surface Mount Technology Association’s (SMTA) Symposium on Counterfeit Parts and Materials on June 28, 2016 at the University of Maryland. Mr. De Russo will discuss how big data solutions can secure the electronics and semiconductor supply chain from counterfeit parts through real-time, electronic chip traceability.

The presentation will focus on how real-time big data solutions can address the electronics counterfeiting problem by:

  • Collecting data on all forms of chip ID (ECID or PUF)
  • Comparing chip IDs throughout the supply chain to support authentication and traceability
  • Identifying chip package information with Certificate of Compliance (CofC) information to provide additional verification and confirmation that the chip flowed through authorized supply chain partners
  • Securely connecting OEMS, CMs and OCMs to ensure the supply chain’s integrity
