Cybord was founded by Dr. Eyal Weiss, after he experienced a crisis due to counterfeit electronic components in a military-grade project that took 12 years to develop and deploy. It took his team months to trace the problem down to a 3 cent passive component. Eyal was not the only one: It is estimated that 5 to 10 percent of all components on the market are counterfeit, resulting in poor reliability and exposure to cyber attacks. It is estimated that the leading reason for product returns are caused by counterfeit components. Cybord detects counterfeit electronic components, helping electronics companies assure that each and every assembled component is 100% genuine and untampered. We achieve this by our patented deep visual inspection technology.
We started with a real pain.
