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.
