Advancements in computer vision and machine learning breakthroughs over the years have paved the way for automated X-ray inspection (AXI) of printed circuit boards (PCBs). However, there is no standard dataset to verify the capabilities and limitations of such advancements in practice due to the lack of publicly available datasets for PCB X-ray inspection. Furthermore, there is a lack of diverse PCB X-ray datasets that encompass images from X-ray Computed Tomography (CT). To address the lack of data, we developed the first comprehensive publicly available dataset, "FICS PCB X-ray," to aid in the development of robust PCB-AXI methodologies. The dataset consists of diverse images from the tomographic image domain, along with challenging cases of unaligned, raw X-ray data of PCBs. Further, the dataset contains projection data and the reconstructed volume which is converted into a Tiff stack. Annotated X-ray layer images are also available for image processing and machine learning tasks. This paper summarizes the existing databases and their limitations, and proposes a new dataset, "FICS PCB X-ray''.
