We see from your search that you're looking for information on the term "BGA packages", and we have a large number of manufacturers' news releases and technical articles here on Electronicstalk which will be of interest. Let me be your guide.
Start with the news release Microprocessor helps boost battery life from Renesas Technology Europe, which we summarised at the time by saying "The SH7721 microprocessor integrates a TFT controller with up to 1024 x 1024 resolution and with an associated, dedicated 2.4Kbyte line-buffer RAM to prevent flickering". A couple of weeks before, we featured the news release Express switches are optimised for communications from IDT: "Switches enable communications system architects to leverage PCIe's power savings, scalability and cost advantages as a primary system or backplane interconnect".
In November 2007, we covered the news from Atheros Communications concerning its AR3031 - take a look at Bluetooth system suits wireless headsets which says: "The AR3031 also features an integrated, high-density read-only memory, which provides greater cost-efficiencies over higher-priced, competitive Flash-based solutions".
Take a look also at the news release from Integrated Silicon Solution, Automotive SDRAMs expand temperature range, as well as IC extends mobile device battery lives from Atheros Communications, and Interposers ease BGA device transitions from Advanced Interconnections Corp.
