Electrical Symbols — Integrated Circuit
An integrated circuit (also referred to as an IC, a chip, or a microchip) is a set of electronic circuits on one small plate ("chip") of semiconductor material, normally silicon. This can be made much smaller than a discrete circuit made from independent electronic components. ICs can be made very compact, having up to several billion transistors and other electronic components in an area the size of a human fingernail.

How to Create an Electrical Diagram Using Integrated Circuit Library
- Open ConceptDraw DIAGRAM new document page.
- Select libraries from Electrical Engineering section.
There are a few different ways to place an object into your drawing:
- Click on an object and then click on the document, at the place you want the object to be inserted.
- Perform a drag-and-drop from the library to your document.
- Double click on an object’s icon in the library to place an object in the center of your document.
- Select the Smart Connector tool . To connect elements using this tool, drag the connector from one connect dot to another.You can use Layers to place connections on different layers.
- Result: Electrical Diagram.
