Avoid Supply Chain Challenges by Reverse Engineering Legacy Designs
Reverse engineering has long been used to deal with parts obsolescence. When parts are no longer available, but the product still has use, reverse engineering can give the product a longer life by redesigning the product using new parts instead of starting a design from scratch to replace a product that is still useful.
This same concept works with the current supply chain challenges.
The components you need may still exist, but may be unavailable due to semiconductor chip or other electronic component parts shortages. Reverse engineering for PCBs can look at the components that are readily available and work on redesigning a project or electronic enclosure with the parts and components that are available, letting you complete orders and fulfill customer requests.
