When were integrated circuits invented?

1958, but the germanium based process was difficult and expensive to use, requiring all the components in the IC be interconnected by hand under a microscope. It took another (MORE)

What is the function of an integrated circuit?

They are very small, yet they contain hundreds of millions of  solid-state components. (Novanet)   The function of an IC (integrated circuit) chip is to replace  many se (MORE)

What is a monolithic integrated circuit?

A monolithic integrated circuit is a collection of interconnected electronic devices (transistors, diodes, resistors and capacitors) all formed on the surface of a single piec (MORE)

What is an integrated circuit?

An integrated circuit - or IC - chip is a circuit made with  components such as transistors, diodes and resistors that are  usually formed simultaneously on a small chip of (MORE)

What is the applications of integrated circuits?

An integrated circuit is the name for collections of electronic components imbedded onto a single piece of silicon. Silicon is the base for most transistors, diodes and other (MORE)

Where was the integrated circuits used?

The first integrated circuit (see image above) was a germanium bar  containing a simple amplifier circuit. It was made and tested in a  research lab at Texas Instruments in (MORE)
