Plastic Pin Grid Array

<hardware, processor>

(PPGA) The package used for certain Intel Celeron processors. PPGA processors fit into Socket 370 motherboard sockets.

The Plastic Pin Grid Array packaging is similar to that used on Pentium processors. The silicon core is covered by a heat slug that faces down toward the motherboard.

The Celeron 300A to the 533 use a PPGA package. The Celeron 566 onward use a FC-PGA package.

Celeron processors are also available in Slot 1 SEPP packaging.
