PCB Reverse Engineering Service & PCB Clone Service

PCB Reverse Engineering (also PCB clone, or PCB Copy) is the processes of Gerber files re-generation, BOM re-generation, Schematic re-generation and Chip Program Extract from the PCBA (PCB assembly) sample provided by the customer, and manufacturing the new PCB prototype and PCB assembly prototype with the same function and appearance. We help creating all required datas, including components specifications, you need to make duplicate boards. Printed circuit board engineering service is one of our PCB design services, MADPCB also supports re-layout and re-design the PCB and PCBA on the re-generated schematic or other demands from customers.
