CARDINAL COMPONENTS, INC., INTRODUCES THE CACF SERIES OF ANTI-COUNTERFEIT OSCILLATORS WITH EMBEDDED ENCRYPTION AND DNA SECURITY.

Wayne, NJ — August 27, 2012—-Cardinal Components, Inc., a world leader in the manufacturing of programmable oscillators, is introducing the CACF series.

The problem is clear---as defined by many agencies and organizations, including the Under Secretary of Defense’s March 16th 2012 memorandum to Defense agencies, and by the Inquiry into Counterfeit Electronic Parts in the Department of Defense Supply Chain Report to the Senate #112-167, May 21, 2012.

The counterfeit problem is real.

In response to it, Cardinal has developed, presented a paper, and demonstrated at the SMTA, CALCE conference, June 26-28 2012 on anti-counterfeit products, a three-part solution to the problem of counterfeit oscillators. In demonstrating its capability for guaranteeing the authenticity of critical system timing products, Cardinal is leading the timing industry in a real-world solution.

Cardinal’s three-part solution to the problem of counterfeit oscillators is as follows:

1. Embed protection in the device. This requires a customer- specific key verified by a special test system provided by Cardinal. A protect-code is configured into every part (40 bits). The synthesis values, which vary from part to part, and the customer key are encrypted with an algorithm (e.g., Rijndael) to form the protect-code.

2. Product level serialization will be available for each and every component as required.

3. DNA strain in the laser marking of products, which requires a special hand-held low-cost spectrometer for product verification.

This three-part solution addresses the physical robustness of the DNA marking, the tracking level security of serialization, and the embedded protection of customer specific key verification.

Cardinal’s new series (called the CACF series) will make it possible for the customer to read the device in-circuit to validate on a finished assembly.

The CACF Series is factory configurable from 1 to 200 MHz, offered in Industrial and Military temperature range. Stability in 100, 50 and 25 PPM levels. Product is offered in 5 volt and 3.3 volt and packaging is offered in SMD 5 x 7, 5 x 3.2 mm and other industry standard packages as well as CMOS, LVDS and LVPECL outputs.

Cardinal plans to offer flexible customer customization to help address this serious industry problem.

Commercialization of the new Anti-Counterfeit line from Cardinal Components will begin in Q4, 2012.
