Solder joint defects classification using the Log-Gabor Filter, the Discrete Wavelet Transform and the Discrete Cosine Transform
Mar, Nang S.S., Fookes, Clinton B., & Yarlagadda, Prasad K. (2012) Solder joint defects classification using the Log-Gabor Filter, the Discrete Wavelet Transform and the Discrete Cosine Transform. In International Conference on Advances in Mechanical and Building, 9-11 January 2012, Tamil Nadu, India.
Inspection of solder joints has been a critical process in the electronic manufacturing industry to reduce manufacturing cost, improve yield, and ensure project quality and reliability. This paper proposes the use of the Log-Gabor filter bank, Discrete Wavelet Transform and Discrete Cosine Transform for feature extraction of solder joint images on Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs). A distance based on the Mahalanobis Cosine metric is also presented for classification of five different types of solder joints. From the experimental results, this methodology achieved high accuracy and a well generalised performance. This can be an effective method to reduce cost and improve quality in the production of PCBs in the manufacturing industry.
