Case Study: Reverse Engineering a Flex PCB to Generate Design Files

Originally published at:

Our PCB design engineers reverse-engineered a flex circuit to recreate the design files and optimize the LCD connectivity. The FPC connected the LCD display and the main rigid circuit board. Since the client didn’t possess the design files, we had to redesign the board to generate the Gerber files to get the board manufactured. In this case study, you’ll learn how our design engineers overcame three major issues: lack of original PCB design and layout documentation, ensuring accurate pad alignment, and addressing complex routing requirements. Highlights: Our flex PCB designers used calipers, microscopes, and reticles to precisely measure the pad…
