An integrated circuit (also known as IC, microchip, silicon chip, computer chip or chip) is a device that includes many electronic components (transistors, capacitors, resistors, diodes, and other circuit components). These components are often interconnected to form multiple circuit components (e.g., gates, cells, memory units, arithmetic units, controllers, decoders, etc.) on the IC. An example of an integrated circuit is a central processing unit (CPU) in a computer. An integrated circuit implements one or more cores which perform the various functions of the integrated circuit as well as circuitry for communicating with other integrated circuits and devices external to the integrated circuit. Integrated circuits typically comprise a semiconductor substrate on which several component layers have been formed to produce a large number of laterally-distributed transistors and other circuit devices. Additional connection layers are formed on top of the component layers to provide interconnections among and power to the circuit devices, and input and output signal connections to the devices. An integrated circuit is generally fabricated utilizing a chip of silicon or other semiconductor material, also referred to as a die. The die consists of a substrate composed of a semiconductor material such as silicon or germanium. One side of the substrate is provided with a plurality of circuit structures that makeup the integrated circuit and the other is left as relatively bare substrate material that is normally planarized via a polishing step. A die is typically installed in a package, and electrically connected to leads of the package. A hybrid integrated circuit is a miniaturized electronic circuit constructed of individual semiconductor devices, as well as passive components, bonded to a substrate or circuit board. Integrated circuits can be classified into analog integrated circuits, digital integrated circuits and mixed signal integrated circuits (both analog and digital on the same chip).
