An integrated circuit or monolithic integrated circuit (also referred to as an IC, a chip, or a microchip) is a set of electronic circuits on one small flat piece (or "chip") of semiconductor material, usually silicon.

In the aerospace context, a microchip is a small, electronic device made of silicon or other semiconductor material that is used to perform a variety of functions. It can be used to store, process, and transmit information, as well as to control various systems and devices. Microchips are used in a wide range of aerospace applications, including avionics, propulsion, guidance and navigation, and communication systems. They are also used in other applications such as aircraft maintenance and monitoring, and in ground support equipment.
