Reverse Engineering

Reverse Engineering

As children, we all used to break our toys and see what are the components of the toys. The thing for which we used to get scolded for, is now a way to check whether a patented technology is used in a product or service. The breakdown of core components of technology is known as Reverse Engineering. 

Reverse engineering (RE) is the process of disassembling an object to examine its design, architecture, coding, and components. It is carried out to obtain information about the components employed in the creation of the object. It works on technology, software, and even plant and animal DNA.

Reverse engineering can assist you to figure out if your patented inventions are being used by a specific company in the industry. Our RE experts are experienced with multiple types of analysis.

  • Circuit analysis: It determines how devices function — from the transistor level down to the interconnections and components needed to develop schematics and other materials.
  • Process analysis: Examines patented semiconductor, optical, and MEM processes, packaging, and/or layout elements to determine how and what devices are constructed.
  • System analysis: This identifies how devices are utilised together and may include sensing, probing, data gathering, or literature study of signals and software inside or between chips.

The reverse engineering results act as evidence of use. It can be mapped against a relevant patent claim to establish patent infringement.

Why there is a need to do Reverse Engineering?

Reverse engineering is done in various industries as per the needs and requirements of the organization. Either for the enhancement of the product or to learn about the usage of any patented technology. It is also done for data recovery as well as re-designing of the product or invention. 

Also, reverse engineering helps to overcome one common factor responsible for the failure of patent licensing i.e. lack of evidence that the patented invention is being used in the technology of a third party.
