Integrated Circuit

Andrew Miller History 1302 - LaCoco Monday, May 9, 2011 “Integrated Circuits” Gordon E. Moore, co-founder of Intel, noted in 1965 that the power of integrated circuits doubles every two years.[1] This, known as Moore’s Law, is the basis for what I believe to have had the most profound impact on American History. Without integrated circuits, culture changing devices such as the iPhone would not be possible. These circuits were created in 1958 by Jack Kilby, inventor of the hand-held...

Microchips: Integrated Circuit and Dynamic Ram

which an integrated circuit is laid out, or such a wafer together with its integrated circuit”. It is a tiny silicon component made for incorporation into devices for increased functionality. 2.2 DESCRIPTION Several types of microchips are made today. Microprocessors are logic chips that perform the computations inside most commercial computers. Memory chips store information. Digital signal processors convert between analog and digital signals. Application-specific integrated circuits are special-purpose...

Integrated Circuit Design

Integrated circuit design, or IC design, is a subset of electrical engineering and computer engineering, encompassing the particular logic and circuit design techniques required to design integrated circuits, or ICs. ICs consist of miniaturized electronic components built into an electrical network on a monolithic semiconductor substrate by photolithography. IC design can be divided into the broad categories of digital and analog IC design. Digital IC design is to produce components such as microprocessors...

Unit 1 Assignment 1 Integrated Circuit Technology

Structure and Logic Unit 1 Assignment 1: Integrated Circuit Technology Based on the reading from Moore’s Law; the number of transistors and integrated circuits double every two years. Starting in 1971 to the present day; transistor number double or even tripled over the years. So I believe the transistor and integrated circuit technology growth is surprising fast due to how evolved technology is becoming. From transistors and integrated circuits doubling every two years, It could be 5-15...

Integrated Circuits

Terminology[edit] An integrated circuit is defined as:[2] A circuit in which all or some of the circuit elements are inseparably associated and electrically interconnected so that it is considered to be indivisible for the purposes of construction and commerce. Circuits meeting this definition can be constructed using many different technologies – see for example thin-film transistor, thick film technology, or hybrid integrated circuit. However, in general usage integrated circuit has since come to...

Material Science

assignment I will be defining the 3 essential properties of every material and describing those. I would also be describing how silicon-based semiconductors revolutionized computing. I will also define what microchips are and how they relate to integrate circuits. Since the pressing questions about the increasing ability of computers to quickly process large amounts of information is whether a computer can be built that is considered “alive” or “conscious.” I will also be defining artificial intelligence...
