Definition: QFP


(Quad FlatPack) A square, surface mount chip package that has leads on all four sides and comes in several varieties. PQFP (Plastic QFP) may refer to all of the following QFP types. All quad flatpacks use gull-wing leads, except for the CQFP, which stick straight out.

From QFP to BGA
As pin counts a couple hundred and more, the long rows of pins in QFPs became unwieldy, thus giving way to the more robust ball grid interconnections (see BGA). See flatpack, gull-wing lead and chip package.
