FREMONT, CA — January 2015 — Datest, a leading provider of advanced, efficient and mission-critical in-circuit testing, test engineering, and X-ray inspection solutions, has introduced a new PCB reverse engineering service. With its new capability, Datest can now rebuild CAD files and board data from printed circuit boards (PCBs) and printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs).

Reverse engineering a PCB or a PCBA is ideal for producing PCB/PCBAs without CAD files or other board data. It also is useful for updating/modifying obsolete boards, redesigning an antiquated or obsolete PCB into a contemporary and cost effective product and testing obsolete boards. Starting from the automatic acquisition of the net list, Datest generates a comprehensive set of board data: CAD file, electronic schematics, net list and part list.
