control pcb getting repaired

This 30-year-old Japanese strapping winder control PCB had a faulty integrated circuit which had been obsoleted by the OEM for many years and could not sourced in the secondary markets. But, one of our repair engineers had an idea for how to salvage the customer’s circuit board. A small-scale Arduino circuit board was purchased, modified, and then installed over the location where the original circuit had been.

Our technician used C++ programming with the Arduino microcontroller to simulate the function of the IC, and mounted the Arduino board to an IC socket to fit onto the PCB. A relay was added to apply a delay time on the board power, to allow for the Arduino's initialization. An Oscilloscope was used to ensure the output signals were properly synchronized. The machine was critical to the customer’s operations, and we saved them time and money with this creative solution.
