That's your DRAM being put on the PCB.

7

A memory module is born.

8

RAM being passed between machines.

There it goes!

    Cool pictures.
    Could you please just put 10-15 of them on one page so I don't have to click through 44 pages?

    pic 21 seems like the fail rate is kinda high, i wonder if they reuse the chips that fail somehow, like in cpu's and gpu's

    Picture 24: Is it a good thing or a bad thing that that is empty? :)

  • This has to be one of the least informative collections of pictures I have ever seen. After clicking through I still have no idea what the manufacturing process is (would it have made sense to present it from beginning to end?) All I have learned is that there is production (apparently the machines give birth to memory modules), testing (apparently the modules are put in test machines. But what sort of test is run?). And then there is packaging. Fascinating. Please tell me that Kingston forced you to scramble to pictures into a disorganised jumble and make random useless comments for the captions, without actually showing anything interesting.
