MLF is something like this:
it is really small against TQFP, but way more difficult to solder it by hand (almost impossible without soldering paste)

Computers don't make errors - What they do they do on purpose.

Didja ever think to look at the chapter in the datasheet with the title "Packaging Information"?

Don't the drawings/diagrams/charts give a reference to the corresponding JEDEC package?

I've never met a pig I didn't like, as long as you have some salt and pepper.

While a TQFP looks like this:

Hand-soldering of MLF/QFN parts isn't difficult.

Section 33 of the datasheet.

TQFP is 9mm x 9mm with leads, 7mm x 7mm body.

MLF is 5mm x 5mm.

I've only tried 2 MLF parts and could never get any sign of life. Came to the conclusion that something must not be getting connected underneath where I can't see.
