“How can we integrate tiny of electronic components onto a small area?”
Electronics are composed of tiny resistors, capacitors, and transistors. And often times these components can be of an extremely small size, on the microscopic level. However, this size can make it hard to integrate onto an electric board. So how could we make a platform that can hold all of these electronics? Well, let’s use our engineering mindset to figure this out. We know that semiconductor wafers could hold many materials on a very small scale. So what if we were just to put these components onto one? Well, this set up is known as an integrated circuit and is used in all forms of modern day technology.
