Uwe wrote to us about the counterfeit chips used in US Military hardware. It turns out that the ice detection system on a Boeing P-8 Poseidon was defective. The suspected culprits are used, and refurbished parts that were sold as new.
remember the stories about ATmega328 fakes/duds about 2 years ago … when Seeed and others sold Seeeduinos and Freeduinos with ATmega168s and Arduinos with ATmega328 were hard to get?
Check out this story on defensetech.org. In particular the pics at the bottom ;)
