Recently advanced device and sophisticated manufacture process by high-density, high-integration require critical inspection criteria in SMT(surface mounting technologies). Especially for solder paste which come out over 60% of inferior goods of all product, 3-dimensional inspection replaces 2-D inspection as a effectiveness substitute of this trend. Therefore this paper proposes a fast 3-D inspection system and measurement algorithm automatically inspecting 3-D solder paste of PCB in SMT assembly line. The proposed method generates 3-D surface of data using B-spline algorithm and then extracts to inspect the pad.
