Reverse engineering is “legal” and BESTProto does not infringe copyright or privacy practices. According to our interpretation of U.S. copyright law, the result of reverse engineering is not a copy. Although the new PCB is functionally identical to the old one, there are enough differences, including current trace routing and updated component specifications, to make it an original piece of work.
You get all of the information and files you need to take your PCB into production. In addition to the items below you then have the ability to have BESTProto build these reverse-engineered products either on a prototype basis for testing or for low volume production. If you decide that neither scenario is well-suited to your situation then BESTProto can assemble your “end of life” builds.
Making a direct copy of an existing circuit board limits you to using the technologies available when it was first designed – which means you’re stuck using older systems and obsolete, hard-to-find components.
Reverse engineering the circuit board retains 100% functionality while reducing costs by using readily available, cheaper, easier-to-handle parts and processes.
Reverse engineering the PCB gives you a first-generation set of plans no matter how complex the circuit board.
Whether you have making ongoing repairs to your processing system to keep it running or you need a “plug-and-go” upgrade such that your – your new replacement circuit board plugs right into your existing system.
