15, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Defense Logistics Agency is insourcing its efforts to make it easier to detect and prevent counterfeit microcircuits
from entering into its supply chain.
DLA is requiring the use of deoxyribonucleic acid, more commonly known as DNA, authentication marking for future procurements of items falling within Federal Supply Class 5962, Electronic Microcircuits
Once a device has been emulated, a continuing source for the microcircuit
is established and available to warfighters.

, "Results in development clinical studies with the sensor reinforce our belief in the success of the GlucoWatch monitor, and we look forward to a long business relationship.
With Sarnoff microcircuit
emulation technology, the DoD can assure the warfighter a safe and reliable long-term source of microcircuits
Like DuPont's other microcircuit
facilities, the plant will be designed to be ISO 9000 certified.

Materials, Joao Carlos Malerbi, said : 'The use of self-limiting technology is very important for designers given the fact that it is a safer way to generate controlled heat.
Class K is the highest reliability level achievable in the assembly of microcircuits
Meanwhile, many other microcircuit
makers have either quietly introduced similarly strained crystals into their chips or are planning to make that move.
Historically, designers have had tremendous obstacles to surmount in working in LTCC because all they have had are just material parameters," said John Voultos, regional segment manager, telecom and high frequency, DuPont Microcircuit
International Rectifier, IR[R] (NYSE:IRF), a world leader in power management technology, today announced that the Defense Supply Center Columbus (DSCC) has issued additional Standard Microcircuit
Drawings (SMDs) for its family of high-reliability DC-DC converters to include the majority of IR's M3G series of space level DC-DC converters.
That would be difficult, but it should be feasible in the near future with microcircuit
fabrication techniques, Lin says.
