Intel® Packaging Databook
Purpose of the Databook
The Intel® Packaging Databook is intended to serve only as a data reference guide to Intel package selection and availability. As the packaging landscape changes very rapidly, information can become outdated very quickly. Please refer to the product specs on the Intel Developer Web Site for the most current detailed package information.
