Appreciate the RECOM service to analyse the failed parts even if the companies have purchased the parts from non-authorized distributors. I beleive the OEM's should be careful and purcahse the parts only from approved distributors to avoid huge problems at the cost of small extra component costs.

There is a delicate balance between RECOM publicizing the diagnostic differences between the real product and the counterfeits for the benefirt of their customers ... and teaching the counterfeiters which changes need to be made for the counterfeits to become indistinguishable. An "arms race".

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
