Adaptive threshold determination for ball grid array component modeling

Image Number 7 for United States Patent #7027637.

A method for determining a number of balls in a projection space comprises determining a projection of a portion of a ball grid array, determining at least one local maximum of the projection space for a given threshold, and determining at least a distance between adjacent maximum. The method further comprises determining an inter-peak histogram of the distances, determining an inter-ball distance for each pair of adjacent balls that has the maximum value of the inter-peak distance histogram corresponding to the pair of adjacent balls, and determining a position of a first ball and a position of a last ball. The method comprises verifying the position of the first ball and the position of the last ball based on a general inter-ball distance, and determining the number of balls.
