In today’s world of ever-advancing technology, it is harder and harder to design and create new designs as well as to protect those designs. Designs can be copied as a whole, or can even be as inconspicuous as firmware programming. With competition seeking to gain an edge anywhere possible, it can be tempting or even lucrative to try to get away with IP theft. If you have concerns about someone stealing your designs, look no further than ScanCAD’s crack team of PCB detectives. Our history in reverse engineering PCBs gives us an edge in extracting PCB design data, making it easy for us to extract design data from a possible copycat design. All you need to do is provide ScanCAD with the original design and the subject in question.

ScanCAD will compare the two designs using material analysis and our legendary reverse engineering process. Armed with the design data from both PCBs,  ScanCAD can examine the structures of both products to determine if there has been a breach in IP ownership.

Lastly, ScanCAD will generate a Proof of Theft report with 7 points of comparison to identify similarities or differences in the two designs, including: 

  1. Physical/Dimensional Similarities 
  2. Manufacturing Spec and Materials
  3. Circuitry Shape, Layout and Implementation
  4. Component and BOM Comparison
  5. Netlist or Schematic 
  6. Firmware, where applicable
  7. Functionality and I/O Integration

Armed with this data, you can comprehensively defend your product design and protect your investments.
