PCB Continued

The boards are cleaned thoroughly several times throughout the process.

A special room is used for where the boards receive their solder masking.

Finally, the copper pattern is etched into the boards. This is where it really begins to look like a finished motherboard.

Once complete, the boards are simply painted via silk-screen.

Several boards from each lot are tested thoroughly by hand. If any board fails, they go back through the entire lot.

I apologize if the PCB tour seems a bit rushed, as honestly, it was. We arrived a little late, and we were sort of rushed through the entire factory after an introduction.
