About Our Electronics Reverse Engineering Services

IAL’s multi-layer PCB reverse engineering and electronics teardown services are as unique and varied as the customers who request them. Integrated circuit reverse engineering requires the use of the deprocessing, cross-sectioning, and electron microscopy expertise IAL has acquired over years of experience and experimentation.

Whether you’re looking for a simple cross-section and SEM inspection to determine some process parameters or a complete, layer-by-layer deprocessed sample set with high resolution optical and electron microscope images that can be used to completely reverse engineer a PCB, IC, semiconductor or any electronic device, IAL can provide the data you need.

For the most in-depth integrated circuit reverse engineering tasks, IAL can provide SEM mosaic images of large functional blocks at extremely high magnifications, which can be stacked into a multi-layer image with extremely precise alignment allowing a signal to be traced over multiple layers of the device.

Our team of engineers can review your requirements and assemble custom tests to provide exactly the data that you need in the most efficient way possible. Working from patent documents, lawyer-specified protocols, or hand-in-hand with an SME or circuit extractor, we can provide the critical data needed for your application.

State-of-the-art PCB Reverse Engineering 

While the majority of our reverse engineering experience is with ICs and PCBs, IAL has performed successful teardowns on a wide range of products, from complicated MEMS gyroscopes and microphones to LEDs, cameras, touchscreens, and many others.

No matter what your requirements might be, IAL is willing to provide a custom-tailored solution.

Example Reverse Engineering Applications

  • Circuit extraction and reverse engineering of obsolete parts
  • Identifying patent infringement
  • Building a “known parts” database for counterfeit screening
  • Gathering competitive intelligence in preparation for new product launches
