Cadhnaiocht Design - Reverse Engineering

Have you lost your CAD documentation? Is the person who designed your product no longer available? Was your design done on an obsolete system?

If so Cadhnaiocht Design can reverse engineer your printed circuit board, we are capable of reverse engineering a PCB from almost any source data. We can take in Gerber files or bare/populated boards and create a fully functioning PCB Design.

But why stop there, once the design has been recreated it can then be modified to design out EMC problems, component obsolescence or add new features to your design. Reverse engineering combined with re-engineering can revitalise old circuits to create a better return on your investment.

We would encourage our customers to review their products and have even taken on cost-reduction exercises to demonstrate savings to customers. There are various reasons to re-engineer a product - obsolescence, improvement in performance; but cost-reductions may be achieved by a simple review of the technology employed in the PCB design and the cost of re-design is often insignificant compared to the overall savings achieved.

What can you expect from a PCB reverse engineering project:

CAD files including schematic diagrams and PCB source file.
Bill of materials.
Gerber files for the production of the PCB with a set of printable PDF files.

Cadhnaiocht Design - Mechanical Drafting

With our expertise we can create: assembly drawings for all types of mechanical and electronic assemblies; heatsinks and metalwork; manufacturing pallets and panelisation drawings; technical and constraint drawings; front panel and PCB outline dimensional drawings.


Cadhnaiocht Design - Training

By providing your staff with PCB design training, they will then have a better understanding of the whole product design cycle and this will lead to better communication between the different design processes. As well as offering advice we can install the software, set up the component libraries and provide full training both in general PCB design and in the specific packages our clients purchase.


Cadhnaiocht Design - CAD Skills

Networking and Telecommunications - Industrial Control and Automation - Test and Measurement - Medical - Aerospace and Defence - Automotive and Transport systems - Consumer Electronics - Fire detection & Security. High Density Interconnect / Sequential Buildup and microvias - exotic materials - via in pad - copper filled vias – blind and buried vias – lead free.


Cadhnaiocht Design - Schematic Capture

Often our clients deliver completed CAD generated schematics, but when required Cadhnaiocht Design can supply high quality schematic designs which will integrate seamlessly with the rest of your design files. Cadhnaiocht Design can take on the role of librarian and can tailor it to your requirement, either for total creation from the ground up or regular updating of your existing component library.


Cadhnaiocht Design - PCB Design

Layouts require the PCB designer to take into consideration all aspects of the circuit, all aspects of the system design, all mechanical requirements, environmental and safety requirements for the completed design, bare board manufacturing requirements and assembly and test requirements.
