Short for micro-Flip Chip Ball Grid Array, micro-FCBGA is one of two Mobile Pentium III Processor-M packages (the other is micro-FCPGA). The micro-FCBGA package is for surface-mount boards and consists of a die facedown on an organic substrate. An epoxy material surrounds the die, forming a smooth fillet. Where the micro-FCPGA uses pins, this package […]
Short for micro-Flip Chip Pin Grid Array, micro-FCPGA is one of two Mobile Pentium III Processor-M packages (the other is micro-FCBGA). The micro-FCPGA package is a die facedown on an organic substrate. An epoxy material surrounds the die, forming a smooth fillet. The package uses 478 pins that are 2.03 mm long and .32 mm […]
Refers to the use of microspacing to justify text.
Microarchitecture is the term used to describe the resources and methods used to achieve architecture specification. The term typically includes the way in which these resources are organized as well as the design techniques used in the processor to reach the target cost and performance goals. The microarchitecture essentially forms a specification for the logical […]
In fiber optic transmissions, microbend is an imperfection in the optical fiber which was created during manufacturing. Microbending can cause extrinsic attenuation, a reduction of optical power in the glass. Unlike macrobending, the imperfection may not always be visible. Contrast with macrobend.
