PCB copying is also often referred to as circuit board copying, circuit board cloning, circuit board copying, PCB cloning, PCB reverse design or PCB reverse research and development in the industry. There are many opinions about the definition of PCB copying in the industry and academia, but none of them is complete. If you want to give a precise definition of PCB copying, you can refer to the statement of the authoritative PCB copying laboratory: PCB copying, that is, on the premise that there are physical electronic products and physical circuit boards, Use the reverse R&D technology to reverse analyze the circuit board, restore the original product's PCB files, bill of materials (BOM) files, schematic diagram files and other technical documents as well as PCB screen printing production documents 1:1, and then use these technical documents and production documents to carry out PCB manufacturing, component welding, flying needle testing, circuit board debugging, and complete the complete copy of the original circuit board template. Because electronic products are all made up of various circuit boards to form the core control part for work, the process of PCB copying can be used to complete the extraction of a complete set of technical data of any electronic product, as well as the imitation and cloning of products.
For PCB copying, many people don't know what it is. Some people even think that PCB copying means imitation, but PCB copying is absolutely not imitation. The purpose of PCB copying is to learn the latest foreign electronic circuit design technology, and then absorb excellent design sche
mes, and then use them to develop and design better products.
PCB copying is a kind of reverse research technology, which is to obtain the PCB design circuit, circuit schematic diagram and BOM of an excellent electronic product through a series of reverse research technologies. Through this reverse research method, it takes two or three years for others to develop a product. Through the reverse research method of PCB copying, it may take only one month to learn the results developed by others in two or three years, which has played a very important role in promoting developing countries to catch up with the pace of the world. Moreover, the development of reverse research technology has also promoted the technological breakthroughs of those development teams. The vigorous development of reverse research technology has also led to the continuous updating of forward research technology. Because of this
competitive relationship between forward research and reverse research, the development of electronic technology can change with each passing day in recent years. Electronic products are updated almost once a year, and the speed of electronic products will only be faster and faster. Because PCB copying lowers the threshold of electronic technology. PCB copying has enabled more and more developing countries to quickly move to the forefront of high-tech electronic technology and study electronic technology with developed countries. The larger the research team, the faster the electronic technology in the world can develop.
