This flexible, cost-effective engineering service involves enhancing legacy components with newer, more reliable technology to improve performance and extend the component's life. The most common product upgrade service performed at PSI is printed circuit boards. In certain scenarios, PSI engineers provide new replacement circuit boards with enhanced technology.
