Integrated Circuits - ICs
Integrated Circuits are semiconductors, often referred to as microchips, chips or microelectronic circuits. They are used in both digital and analogue electronics applications, and at least one will be present in almost every electronic item you own or build. They are the brains in electronic equipment that allow them to function, and are connected to every other component in the circuit. It is clear, therefore, that a fully functioning microchip is essential for your electronic item to function.
