What are Integrated Circuits?

Did you know that Integrated Circuits are static sensitive and can be damaged if you touch them because of the static electricity? Integrated Circuits, also known as IC Chips, are microchips that houses thousands to millions of mini capacitors, resistors, and transistors. There are two types of IC Chips, Analog, has a continuous output and Digital, works at defined states.

Popular Integrated Circuits?

Listed below are the most common integrated circuits in the market today:


  • IC 4017 is a decade counter / johnson counter that has 16 pins. This means that it will take clock pulses from a clock input device and will make one of the 10 outputs come on once the pulse arrives.
  • IC 7408 is a Quad two input and gate integrated circuit chip. The 7408 IC Chip has a large voltage range with a low input current and high noise immunity.
  • IC 4011 is a CMOS quad nand gate meaning that it will be able to handle large varieties of voltages with low power consumption. Due to the sensitivity of the this type of chip, one must be precautionary to static electricity.
  • 74LS00 is a QUAD 2-Input Positive NAND Gate.
  • 74LS164 is a 8-Bit Serial-In Parallel-Out Shift Register
