Flip Chip Ball Grid Array: a micro CPU package for surface mount boards consisting of a die placed face-down on an organic substrate. Instead of using pins, the package uses small balls, which acts as contacts for the processor. The advantage of using balls instead of pins is that there are no leads that bend. The package uses 479 balls, which are .78 mm in diameter.
