How Motherboards Are Made: A Gigabyte Factory Tour

Posted by Parth Barot on June 22, 2006

Without a doubt, motherboards are the most complex and essential part of the modern PC. Not only do they hold the chipsets that pass data from peripherals, drives and memory to the processor, they also provide slots and ports for all your other system components and the circuits through which all data must pass. Perhaps surprisingly then, motherboards get very little respect in the computing press as compared to other components. They are perpetually the team player and not the star of the show, and are generally priced as such.

With this in mind, it’s surprising to learn the amount of work and machinery involved in manufacturing a single motherboard. We’d vaguely imagined some sort of stamping process where all components are slapped onto the bare board in one step and soldered, before being boxed in a big room full of bored workers. Sure there’d have to be some testing, but how intense could it be?

As PCSTATS recent trip to Gigabyte’s Nan-Ping factory in Taiwan showed us last summer during Computex 2004, there’s a lot more to it. In fact, producing and testing a single motherboard involves a mind-boggling host of automated machines, people and processes; so we’d like to detail the whole assembly line to give you a feel for how things are really made.
