computer chip at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:
Integrated circuit or small wafer of semiconductor material embedded with integrated circuitry. Chips comprise the processing and memory units of the modern digital computer (see microprocessor, RAM). Chip making is extremely precise and is usually done in a "clean room," since even microscopic contamination could render the chip defective. Computer chips have grown smaller and more powerful at a steady rate in the last years of the 20th cent. Micro- and nanotechnology is expected to make them even smaller and more powerful in the 21st cent.
