Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to propose a defect detection method of silicone caps positional deviation on flexible printed circuit board (FPCB) of keyboard based on automatic optical inspection.

Design/methodology/approach

First, the center of silicone caps of target keyboard FPCB image was extracted as feature points for generating the feature image which is used for registration rigidly with the reference feature image generated from the CAD drawings. Then, a flexible image registration method based on the surrounding-control-center B-splines (SCCB) strategy was proposed, which could correct the flexible deformation of the image generated by FPCB substrate while keeping the pasting deviation information about silicone caps unchanged. Finally, on this basis, a nearest neighbor strategy was proposed to detect the positional deviation of silicone caps.

Findings

Experimental results show that the proposed method can effectively detect the positional deviation defect of silicone caps. The G-mean value of the proposed method is 0.941746, which is 0.3 higher compared to that of similar research.

Originality/value

This paper presents a method to detect positional deviation defect of silicone caps on keyboard FPCB. Different from the classic B-spline image registration method, the proposed SCCB method used the neighborhood information of the pixel to be registered selectively to calculate the displacement vector needed for its registration, which overcame the problem that the silicone cap pasting deviation information disappears with the correction of the flexible deformation of the image.
