PCB DSLR Dataset

The PCB DSLR dataset is meant to facilitate research on computer-vision-based Printed Circuit Board (PCB) analysis, with a focus on recycling-related applications. The dataset contains 748 images of PCBs from a recycling facility, captured under representative conditions using a professional DSLR camera. All images come with accurate PCB segmentation information as well as bounding box information for all Integrated Circuit (IC) chips (9313 samples).


Please refer to [1] for detailed statistics.

  • Camera: Nikon D4 with f/2.8 lens and polarization filter
  • Image resolution: 4928×3280 (about 220 ppi)
  • 165 different PCBs, 3 to 5 images per PCB, 748 images in total
