$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....

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
