This paper outlines the development of a data-driven, fine pitch component placement machine, PPA-A, which is an integrated robotic workcell developed for attaching fine pitch integrated circuit components to printed circuit boards. In particular, the objectives for the machine are reviewed, and an overview of the solution is given. Problems encountered during the development are discussed, and details of the algorithms developed to solve these problems are given. These problems relate to achieving very precise placement of components, and are solved by novel calibration and execution schemes.<>
