[Knappa Teardown (2)] Directly Soldered FPC of Camera Module
The method of mounting the camera module drew attention of an engineer who participated in the teardown. A flexible printed circuit (FPC) board whose lines had a narrow pitch was connected to the camera module. However, the pitch was expanded, and the terminal of the FPC board was directly soldered to the main board. Though a connector for FPC is normally used in this case, Ikea did not use a connector probably in the aim of reducing costs.
