Reverse Engineering

By taking a product apart you can see how it works, identify any damage or faults that may exist in the production process and follow the steps that were used to manufacture the product. At SGS our reverse engineering service follows a product from the end to the beginning of its construction.

Deconstruction can be as challenging as designing a product, and expert knowledge is needed in analyzing increasingly complex products. Our reverse engineering service of semiconductor and other high-tech products offers you the expertise and state-of-the-art equipment needed for accurate analysis of your product. We use delayering and cross-sectioning techniques to provide a highly detailed analysis.

Why use reverse engineering?

By taking a product apart and reassembling it, reverse engineering is a way of:

  • If there has been a failure, identifying where that might be in your production process
  • Identifying how your product might be enhanced
  • Improving or duplicating a formulation of interest

We are one of Europe’s leading providers of non-medical laboratory analysis and our laboratory in Dresden is one of the longest-running microelectronics labs. Contact SGS to find out how your business can benefit from product reverse engineering.
