Component Testing - Testing is only part of the the verification process and not the primary suspect counterfeit component determination.  There are many ways to test a component as presented in our program/course, PRO-STD-001.  Visual inspection is an absolute must to determine if a part is a "Pull", a previously used part plucked or scraped off from electronic e-waste.  Military programs do not accept or allow used material in US defense equipment.  The reliability risk is severe, not to mention safety and legal ramifications.  The bottom line; testing is very important, however visual inspection for evidence of a used part is equally if not more important in determining final analysis.  Worth repeating, visual Inspection, looking for the tell tale signs/marks a counterfeiter leaves behind is crucial in determining suspect /counterfeit material.
