A team of researchers in England is challenging that convention with a magnetic microcircuit that carries out simple but important steps in computation.
A microcircuit will only work if absolutely everything is right.
Worryingly, the man from Citroen warned that failure to restore the roof correctly might sheer off tiny but expensive-sounding microcircuits (Uh-oh!).
Should their silicon inhabitants - microcircuits , microgears, and micropower drivers - exist in a vacuum?
Instead of producing microcircuits , Intel could end up making furnaces.
Similarly, although the demand for gold for industrial purposes has grown - principally for computer semiconductors and microcircuits - the giant's share, 80%, remains centred on jewellery.
An example might be the manufacture of microcircuits .
The most time-consuming and expensive step in constructing microcircuits focuses a pattern of light onto a semiconductor surface coated with a photosensitive film.
Since the advent of the philosophy of microcircuitry in 1951, great changes have taken place in electronics.
The brain's microcircuitry was designed to implement these algorithms, so a map of their cognitive structure can be used to bring order out of chaos at the neural level.
