1.1. Integrated Circuit

1.2. Microchip

1.3. Nanotechnology

1.4. RAM chips

2. Replaced the vacuum tube due to its small size

2.1. It is often used in modern cellphones

2.2. Every year the silicon chip gets smaller and more powerful

2.3. Size of a fingernail

3. Jack Kilby and Robert Noyce invented the chip
