To address the DHS need for a handheld device for rapid, real-time, non-destructive detection of counterfeit microelectronics devices and systems, Intellisense Systems, Inc. (Intellisense) proposes to develop an Automatic Visual Inspection and Counterfeit Detection (AVID) system by applying dual-band (visible/infrared) nondestructive imaging and novel deep/machine learning-based image analytics. The AVID handheld device will automatically inspect a printed circuit board (PCB) of interest in both visible and infrared (IR) bands. Its cloud processing software will analyze the images, detect exterior physical defects on the PCB and its integrated circuitry (IC) components, and determine at high accuracy and in real time whether the PCBs and ICs are counterfeit. As a result, this system offers real-time, non-destructive detection capability to help the Customs and Border Protectionagents rapidly identify counterfeit PCB and IC components at ports of entry. In Phase I, Intellisense will demonstrate the feasibility of AVID by designing its system architecture, developing a counterfeit image dataset, developing algorithms for defect detection and classification, and integrating key components into a Phase I prototype to demonstrate AVID’s feasibility. In Phase II Intellisense plans to further mature the AVID prototype design for rapid real-time counterfeit electronics detection and develop a Phase II transition plan. The successful completion of this project at the end of Phase III will benefit the nation in both government and commercial sectors as a result of AVID’s highly effective counterfeit IC/PCB detection capability. Commercial applications of this technology include non-destructive inspection, quality control, and defect inspection of microelectronics components.
