plastic pin grid arrayShort for Plastic Pin Grid Array, PPGA was developed by Intel in 1993 as a solution to heat-related issues for processors with more transistors than earlier models using CPGA. PPGA has a higher thermal resistance, better electrical performance, and improved power distribution capability; allowing for better performance of processors that are more sensitive to heat transmission.
