Reverse Engineering Services
Re-Engineering (Board Prototyping, Testing & retrofitting)
Another service we offer at RTS is Reverse Engineering of Printed Circuit Board. We can take your sample, including components, and completely reverse engineer it. We create all the data you need to make duplicates. We can even reverse engineer boards that include programmed IC’s, custom parts, and obsolete parts.
Stage 1: Schematic Design
Produce a circuit diagram from the sample PCB. From the schematic and sample PCB a full bill of materials can be produced.
Stage 2 Analyse the original design
Investigate the original design and check the original calculations to see if they were the possible design errors. Discuss with the customer any common failure modes they have experienced.
Stage 3 Redesign the circuit
Redesign some parts of the circuit that are likely to lead to failure, using modern techniques and components. Review the input and output interfaces to see if they can be protected from damage by other external circuit failures.
Stage 4 Analyse Components
Review the Bill of Materials used and check if they are recommended for new designs. After many years there are usually alternative semiconductors, which are more reliable.
Stage 5 PCB Design
Design a new PCB with industrial standard tools and apply the latest safety standards that are applicable to the product.
Stage 6 Sample manufacture and approval
Manufacture and test a sample PCB for customer approval. Required tests followed by formal approval and may be produced for assembly.
Laser Range Finder
A laser range finder is integrated with the Gunner’s Main Sight to range the targets. The Controller PCB for Laser range finder (LRF) is re-engineered by RTS for CVRDE through Bharat Electronics Limited. With The Existing Board of Obsolete Components, RTS Reengineered, Qualified and Provided Form, Fit, and Function (F3) Solution.
