CPE/ECE Credits: 24 Course Descrption Taking the hard out of hardware hacking. This is for people who want to actually understand what they’re doing! Have you ever wanted to reverse engineer a piece of electronics, but didn’t know where to begin? Do you lack the knowledge to troubleshoot hardware hacking problems? Did your Internet resources lack the “how to” hands-on instruction? Wouldn’t it be nice if someone could take you by the hand and elevate your hardware reverse engineering knowledge from zero to hero in a logical, well organized manner? Well the search is over because we have developed a new hardware reverse engineering course to do just that! From using basic hardware debugging tools, to PCB reverse engineering, to circuit and signals analysis, this course will take you from “zero to hero” and equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to approach the challenges of hardware reverse engineering with confidence. Course Length 3 days Course Topics Fundamental Embedded Hardware Concepts * Basic electronics and circuit analysis * Analog/digital communications * Common inter-component protocols First Look: Non-Invasive Hardware Reverse Engineering * Component identification * Tracking PCB traces * Re-producing schematic and block diagrams Bus Sniffing and Interface Analysis * Spying on communications protocols * Decoding and deciphering captured bits * Identifying and extracting important data Soldering and Desoldering * Soldering and desoldering basics * Component removal and replacement * Dealing with surface mount components What To Do When It All Goes Wrong * Intermediate-level electronics and circuit analysis * Understanding your tools and their effects on the circuit * Understanding the circuit and its effect on your tools Instructor Bios Instructors Heather Eacmen and Craig Heffner specialize in embedded systems reverse engineering and analysis, with a combined experience of over 12 years in the industry. Private, on-site training is available. Call +1 (443) 276–6990 or email us at
