One of the 20th century's largest breakthroughs in electronics, integrated circuits paved the way for miniaturized electronics
For a more detailed history, see the article Integrated Circuits.
Subcategories[edit | edit source]
- Bipolar integrated circuits - an integrated circuit in which the principal element is the bipolar junction transistor
- CMOS integrated circuits & microprocessors - complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor integrated circuits, which exhibit high noise immunity and low static power consumption
- Coprocessors - a computer processor used to supplement the functions of the primary processor (or CPU)
- Current mode circuits - circuits demonstrating linearity and increased bandwidth
- Field programmable gate arrays - or FPGA, an integrated circuit designed to be customized by the customer or designer after manufacturing
- Hybrid integrated circuits - also known simply as hybrids, a miniaturized electronic circuit constructed of semiconductor devices and passive components on a printed circuit board.
- Integrated circuit manufacture, modeling & packaging - the production aspect of integrated circuits
- Integrated circuit noise - perturbation of the signals in an integrated circuit
- Large scale integration - the process of creating integrated circuits by combining thousands of transistors in one chip
- Monolithic integrated circuits - a circuit that is entirely located on a single piece of silicon, nowadays often synonymous with integrated circuit
- Power integrated circuits - integrated circuits that are capable of driving a power load and of handling high voltage or current
- Radiofrequency integrated circuits - or RFIC, analog circuits that are often used in wireless communication devices
- Thick film circuits - a circuit created by adding several successive layers of conductor, resistors, and dielectrica onto an insulating substrate using screen printing
- Thin film circuits - a circuit in which the passive components and conductors are produced as films on a substrate by evaporation and/or sputtering
- Very high speed integrated circuits - or VHSIC, a Department of Defense program in the 1980s to develop faster integrated circuits
