FC-PGA

Intel Pentium III coppermineShort for Flip-Chip Pin Grid Array, a FC-PGA or Flip Chip is a design process developed by Intel of flipping the chip die to face away from the motherboard. This method allows for easy mass-production of computer processors by eliminating the need for wire bonding and allows a heat sink to have more of a direct contact. The picture is of the Intel Pentium III coppermine and an example of a PC-PGA processor.
