Original or Counterfeit?

Every year, product plagiarism inflicts billions of dollars in damages to businesses. Such counterfeiting is not limited to luxury goods and lifestyle products; it also is prevalent in small electronic devices or even printer cartridges. Infineon Technologies has announced its new OPTIGAT Trust authentication chip, which helps manufacturers of electronic accessories and replacement parts protect their businesses against damages caused by counterfeiting. Consumers benefit as well, as authentication chips can help to reduce the risk of damaging the end-device by using poorly designed pirate products.
