Integrated Circuit:

It is called an integrated circuit because the components, circuits, and base material are all made together, or integrated, out of a single piece of silicon, as opposed to a discrete circuit in which the components are made separately from different materials and assembled later. IC's range in complexity from simple logic modules and amplifiers to complete microcomputers containing millions of elements.
