Integrated Circuit

Integrated Circuits are small chips that can be used in many different ways from an oscillator to even computer memory. They are made up of silicon and contain up to millions of capacitors, resistors and transistors. Digital IC's work by using logic gates which will work with 0s and 1s - a low signal will result in a 0 and a high signal will be a 1. Digital IC's are used in most electronic consumables. Analog IC's work by using continuous values only, they can take an input of any variety and output a different value. Analog IC's are normally used in radio frequency amplification.
