Integrated Circuit (IC)? and Generation of IC
Integrated Circuit (IC)
IC is a miniature electronic device consisting of many semiconductor device. Millions of transistor, capacitor and resistor devices are integrated on the IC circuit board.
Generation of IC and Transistor numbers
SSI = Small Scale Integration (< 10 transistors)
MSI = Medium Scale Integration (100 to 1K transistors)
LSI = Large Scale Integration (1K to 20K transistors)
VLSI = Very Large Scale Integration (20K to 100K transistors)
ULSI = Ultra Large Scale Integration (100K to 1000K transistors).
