Integrated Circuits

An integrated circuit (IC) has hundreds, even thousands, of discrete devices on a single silicon chip. These include diodes, transistors, resistors, and capacitors. The IC is usually packaged in ceramic or plastic and each tiny device inside is connected to one or more leads that plug into a larger on-vehicle circuit. One type can process analog signals - those that change continuously with time. Another type can process digital signals - those that change intermittently "on" or "off" with time.
