    an integrated circuit with 10 000 to 100 000 components.


  • In the classification of ICs, the inclusion of between 100,000 and 1,000,000 electronic components, such as transistors, on a single chip. This definition may require many more components in a few years to qualify for this level of integration, as miniaturization progresses. Its abbreviation is VLSI.
