An Integrated Circuit is a formal name for a component commonly termed chip or IC, that is a small electronic device made out of a semiconductor material.
The first integrated circuit was developed in the 1950s by Jack Kilby of Texas Instruments and Robert Noyce of Fairchild Semiconductor, now a part of Schlumberger.
Integrated circuits are used for a variety of devices, including microprocessors (CPUs), audio and video equipment, and automobiles. Integrated circuits are often classified by the number of transistors and other electronic components they contain:
IC are usually packaged in a plastic or ceramic case with external connector pins.Some ICs used in midibox designs:
