Counterfeits pose considerable performance, safety, and reliability risks. To help mitigate this risk, TI strongly recommends our customers purchase either directly from TI, an authorized distributor or authorized reseller.

TI works actively with Semiconductor Industry Association and other industry organizations to combat counterfeiting, advance industry standards that will help reduce the incidence of counterfeits and assist law enforcement agencies in their efforts to address this challenge. For more information on this issue, please review an industry paper titled Winning the Battle Against Counterfeit Semiconductor Products.
