Course Description

The PCB Reverse Engineering Course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to de-process, analyze, and recreate design files of electronic devices. Participants will learn the techniques and tools required to reverse engineer printed circuit boards (PCBs) and assess legacy or obsolete devices. Through practical hands-on exercises and real-world examples, participants will gain expertise in reverse engineering methodologies, PCB analysis, and recreating design files for testing or manufacturing replacements.
