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".
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.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
