Barricade Protects
National Supply Chains

Counterfeit or changed hardware compromise the security, quality, reliability and profitability of products across industries and our national defense. With Barricade, these threats are reduced, ICs are authenticated and components are protected.

How it Works 

Barricade technology is created with the most advanced signal acquisition hardware and software capabilities installed on-site. The system collects and transmits a component fingerprint to a remote, authenticated server for classification. A user report is then returned to the system with the results of the authentication classifier.  
An all-encompassing classifier algorithm performs an electronic component classification. This means only a few authentic chips are necessary to enroll an entire class, letting you allocate your valuable resources elsewhere. Barricade is applicable to analog and digital devices, and immediately ready for use.
