Back to the Floor
This is another of the rather impressive machines called the Automated Inspection System or AIS. This allows the board to pass into a special machine that check the board over for defects, cracks in the PCB or other problems that would affect the board that the human eye couldn't pick up.
After the boards have done their pass through the AIS its time to start putting on the little bits that make the boards like sockets and connectors. The board we were seeing made was the new EP45-DQ6 which is GIGABYTE's high-end P45 mobo.
Here we see the line of people installing components. Each person puts either one or two parts on, as you can see there are quite a few people there so that's lot of connectors to go on the board.
There are the components ready to be installed, where we have DDR2 memory slots, PCI Express x16 slots, audio connectors and USB/RJ45 towers.
