Avnet Electronics Marketing Takes the Stage at ESC Boston to Present Design Strategies to Prevent Product Cloning, IP Theft


PHOENIX -- Product cloning and intellectual property (IP) theft have become a global business, costing companies billions of dollars in lost revenue. Jim Carver, technology specialist at Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas (EMA), a business region of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), will be speaking about product protection at the upcoming Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) Boston.

ESC Boston will be held September 20-23, 2010, at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston. Carver’s presentation - which takes place on Thursday, September 23, 2010, in room 102, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. - will cover the current landscape of products available for IP protection, as well as the cost/benefit tradeoffs between various technologies. Attendees will also learn design techniques for implementing a sound security system that greatly limits exposure to risk.

“The global nature of today’s economy, coupled with the rapid dissemination of information, has made the electronics industry a rich environment for parties willing to engage in counterfeiting or product misuse,” says Carver. “This presentation will show engineers what technologies are available today to prevent these losses and how to properly deploy them.”
