X-out board replacement, which involves removing and replacing defective boards from a panel, is possible by milling out the defective board and transplanting a new board into the open spot. X-out board replacement involves removing the defective board from the panel by milling and replacing it with a good board that is secured to the panel with epoxy. The panel with x-out replacement will then be ready for the rigors of production, including the thermal processing of reflow soldering and stresses of depanelization.
