1. "Integrated circuit design involves the creation of electronic components, such as transistors, resistors, capacitors and the interconnection of these components onto a piece of semiconductor, typically silicon." (Wikipedia: Integrated circuit design, 1.11.23 UTC 11:26)


2. "Digital integrated circuits can contain billions of logic gates, flip-flops, multiplexers, and other circuits in a few square millimeters." (Wikipedia: Integrated circuit, 1.22.23 UTC 09:29)


3. "Very-large-scale integration was made practical by technological advancements in metal-oxide-silicon (MOS) semiconductor device fabrication." (Wikipedia: Integrated circuit, 1.22.23 UTC 09:29)


4. "Semiconductor ICs are fabricated in a planar process which includes three key process steps - photolithography, deposition (such as chemical vapor deposition), and etching." (Wikipedia: Integrated circuit, 1.22.23 UTC 09:29)


5. "A random-access memory is the most regular type of integrated circuit; the highest density devices are thus memories; but even a microprocessor will have memory on the chip." (Wikipedia: Integrated circuit, 1.22.23 UTC 09:29)
