K14L die
K14L die, bonded to flex
  • It’s seems to be identical with the SpecTek part #WXMK15L
  • It’s bonded directly on the flex cable without protection. The bond wires can be damaged very easily when trying to buzz through the connections
  • The autofocus is a piezo spiral, driven by high voltage which is generated on the camera module by a DC/DC converter
