An Integrated circuit is a miniature, lowpass electronic circuit consisting of active and passive elements that are irreparably joined together on a single twisters of silicon .
IC’s are classifed into two types:
1) Linear IC’s
2) Digital IC’s
Depending on the requirements can be classified into :
- Monolithic technology
- Hybrid technology
1. Monolithic Technology :
Technology in which all the circuit components are place in one single chip of silicon twisters is called “monolithic technology”.
2.Hybrid Technology :
The technology which has separate component parts which are attached to a ceramic substrate and inter-connected by means of either metalization factor / wire bonds is called “hybrid technology”.
