News editors obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "The instant disclosure relates to a multi-track detection system, and more particularly, to a multi-track detection system for detecting the appearance of electronic elements.
"Mobile communication and electronic devices have been developed to be multi-functional, miniaturized, highly reliable and low cost. Therefore, different functions of circuit designs are integrated onto increasingly smaller chip size. For example, mobile phones with only voice communication function are out of date and newly designed phones commonly have many accessory functions, such that people can record important matters in the phone, transfer a text message to a friend or watch digital TV programs on the phone.
"Thus, with the increasing variety and sophistication of electronic devices, the quality and the reliability of the electronic components are crucial to the performance of the electronic devices. Generally, it is necessary for the components to be tested when the manufacturing procedure is finished. In the traditional inspection method, all the components are disposed on a large-area disk and many cameras are used for capturing the images of the surface appearances of the components. For inspecting the bottom surface of each component, the large-area disk has to be transparent."
As a supplement to the background information on this patent, VerticalNews correspondents also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent: "One particular aspect of the instant disclosure is to provide a multi-track detection system for detecting the appearance of electronic elements.
"One of the embodiments of the instant disclosure provides a multi-track detection system for detecting the appearance of electronic elements, comprising: a rotary module, a feeding module, an unvibrated module, a detection module, and a classification module. The rotary module includes a rotary base structure and a hollow transparent rotary structure disposed on the rotary base structure. The hollow transparent rotary structure has a bottom surface divided into an inner loop area and an outer loop area around the inner loop area, the inner loop area of the hollow transparent rotary structure is covered by the rotary base structure, the outer loop area of the hollow transparent rotary structure is exposed, the hollow transparent rotary structure has at least two annular guiding areas on the top surface thereof and above the outer loop area, and the electronic elements are sequentially arranged on the at least two annular guiding areas. The feeding module includes at least one feeding unit adjacent to the hollow transparent rotary structure, wherein the at least one feeding unit has at least two V-shaped feeding grooves for guiding the electronic elements. The unvibrated module includes at least one unvibrated guiding block adjacent to the hollow transparent rotary structure and disposed between the hollow transparent rotary structure and the feeding module, wherein the at least one unvibrated guiding block has at least two V-shaped unvibrated guiding grooves respectively communicated with the at least two V-shaped feeding grooves and respectively corresponding to the at least two annular guiding areas, and the electronic elements on the at least two V-shaped feeding grooves are sequentially transmitted onto the at least two annular guiding areas through the at least two V-shaped unvibrated guiding grooves. The detection module includes a plurality of electronic element detecting units adjacent to the hollow transparent rotary structure, wherein the electronic element detecting units are sequentially disposed around the hollow transparent rotary structure. The classification module is adjacent to the hollow transparent rotary structure and disposed between the feeding module and the last one of the electronic element detecting units.
