Definition Edit

Very-large-scale integration (VLSI) is the process of creating integrated circuits by combining thousands of transistors into a single chip. VLSI began in the 1970s when complex semiconductor and communication technologies were being developed. The microprocessor is a VLSI device.

Overview Edit

"VLSI circuits made possible the processor on a chip, which in turn made computers ubiquitous, faster, cheaper and more powerful while computer memories grew bigger, cheaper, and more reliable."[1]
