in·te·grat·ed circuit

(ĭn′tĭ-grā′tĭd)
A device made of interconnected electronic components that are etched or imprinted onto a tiny slice of a semiconducting material, such as silicon or germanium. An integrated circuit smaller than a fingernail can hold millions of circuits. Also called chip.

integrated circuit

1. A tiny electrical circuit that is made up of a semiconductor chip with several electronic components.
2. A minute electrical circuit containing thousands of electronic components on a tiny chip of silicon.
