HOW A MICROCHIP IS MADE
HOW A MICROCHIP IS MADEA sophisticated processor can contain hundreds of millions or billions of transistors interconnected by fine metal wires. The process of making chips is extremely complex requiring hundreds of precisely controlled steps.The base material of microchips is silicon. Silicon is called a semiconductor that relates to its molecular structure. Silicon can conduct electricity under certain conditions and nonconductive under others. This feature acts as a basic circuit of a transistor: an on/off or binary 1/0 switches either allowing or preventing electrical current to pass through a gate. The process of manufacturing microchips building millions or billions of transistors on an IC chip makes it phenomenally precise and complex.
