Often, when products are discontinued, we must buy from brokers
(non-official stocks / independent distributors). We provide a safety net
by selecting our brokers carefully and by extending the warranty of the
products regardless of the year they were manufactured.

In order to AVOID AND DETECT Counterfeit Electronic Parts, we follow and apply SAE Aerospace AS5553 Standards mixed with our
ISO9001:2008 QMS in order to meet our customer requirements (target price, delivery, date-code restrictions...). About 20% of counterfeits
are detected simply par "touch" and experience (these parts usually pass all electrical and visual test).
