$600 K in 35 shipments. Am I correct in understanding that this single broker could have dented the semiconductor industry by around $50 M in a few years? Considering the total number of shipments it has made @ ~3200

I agree. And considering the magnitude of this one discovery, I am scared to know how much more it could be.

What a BS! John, you should stop listening to Limbaugh, Fox and their right wing idiotic ilk.

Paid $400k and sold for 16M?? If this is correct than just from this huge profit margin there is no doubt that most if not all the chips were fake.

Hm...I believe there is a simple and quick solution: fire Bersin. His "interpretation" of the law simply does not make any sense.

It's matter of time before secure VLSI unique identification and authentication technologies are adopted. I just hope it's not going to take a major disaster for politicians to legislate for this.

Good point. The solution in my opinion is to accept the added cost of unique identification and secure authentication of IC chips. This is in the interest of every country. PS. The cost need not be prohibitive. It's a matter of political will...

I too agree, the whole $400 toilet seat and $500 wrench is pure drivel, in military work, (of late this has improved) a good portion of the cost comes from the reams of product and origin specifications that must be met. COTS helps, but the fed runs on paperwork....

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
