The Tour Continued

 

The next step we see in the pictures below is where parts are manually placed on the motherboards by ABit staff...

 

 

 

 

The machine pictured in the image below is the next step in the assembly line where the various parts in this room are fixed to the motherboard...

 

 

The next step in the assembly line is actually checking and testing the motherboards to see if they work ok and are up to ABit's standards, before being passed...

 

 

Here we see more extensive testing of these new motherboards, standard procedure...

 

 

Once they have been tested (48 hours normally before being passed) and work correctly, they are packed in black boxes ready for shipping...

 

 

that's basically it for the fab tour side of things, it was really an interesting experience. After feasting on some greasy KFC and Pizza Hut in the ABit conference room, we were shown the new ABit website which will become active shortly and a look into how ABit name their motherboards. OK back to the classroom here for a minute here, let's take the ABit SA6R motherboard for example as shown my Scott in the picture below. The "S" comes from the first letter of the chipset, the "A" is pulled out of the sky, the "6" is the generation of processor the motherboard is for and the "R" is also pulled out of the sky to make a name which sounds good, basically.

 

 

Thanks for the tour ABit, good fun!
