Default pinless processors

A couple of months ago (or something like that), at one of the business reports (here or at tomshardware), there was a reference to a pinless processor using some sort of a bumpless technology. I forget exactly where it is. I searched, but the search yielded nothing. I need the article for a class. Could someone give me a reference please? To any article talking about this technology? Thanks in advance.

Thats exactly what I think I mean. I don't know exactly what that stands for. I told my instructor I would bring the article with me today, but I am unable to locate anything of significance.

Awesome article...

Only sad part was...
Quote:
While AMD has taken the performance crown from Intel on numerous occasions, AMD cannot compete with Intel's manufacturing capabilities. Intel actually has a branch whose sole purpose is to deal with packaging and the needs of tomorrow's processors. Intel has been talking about 1 billion transistors in a chip running at 10GHz+, so it's no surprise that they have 900 people working on packaging technologies
Would be nice if AMD could have this as well...
