Auto-3D: Automated Reverse Engineering of Printed Circuit Board Design

CAD for

Reverse Engineering of Printed Circuit Board

Description

The verification of PCB design for failure analysis, proving evidence of IP theft by a competitor, and reverse engineering for product development or resurgence is a complex process requiring tools and experienced personnel. This process often requires time consuming destructive or expensive nondestructive tools for design derivation. X-ray volumetric analysis is used to collect 3D volume information from a PCB, and the Auto-3D system is capable of assisted and automated PCB netlist extraction. Auto-3D is developed upon open-source software capable of working with any X-ray tool equipped with adequate resolution and volumetric data collection.
