Detail of integrated circuit

Definition Edit

An integrated circuit is

a collection of electronic elements which are interconnected to form an electronic circuit. These elements and interconnections are formed in or upon a substrate of semiconductor material.[1]

History Edit

"In 1958, Jack Kilby and Robert Noyce separately invented the integrated circuit, which for the first time allowed multiple transistors to be fabricated and connected on a single piece of silicon. That technology was quickly picked up by computer designers to design higher-performance and more power-efficient computer systems. This technology breakthrough inaugurated the modern computing era."[2]}}
