Orienting Silicon Integrated Circuit Chips for Lead Bonding

Unknown author (1975-01-01)

Will computers that see and understand what they see revolutionize industry by automating the part orientation and part inspection processes? There are two obstacles: the expense of computin and our feeble understanding of images. We believe these obstacles are fast ending. To illustrate what can be done we describe a working program that visually determines the position and orientation of silicon chips used in integrated circuits.
