Application number: 17/361,646

Abstract:
A solder joint inspection model training method includes the steps of: training a first identification model according to first sample images to identify a surface-mount device with a solder joint in an image; training a second identification model according to second sample images to identify a surface-mount device without a solder joint in an image; inputting labeled original images to a trained first identification model to output first images; inputting the first images to a trained second identification model to output second images; masking the first images with the second images to generate images with normal solder joints and images with abnormal solder joints; and training a solder joint inspection model based on the images with normal solder joints and the images with abnormal solder joints.
