What did the development of microchips lead to?
A microchip is a small piece of r material holding many integrated circuits. Theses circuits contain information which can be scanned.
How a microchip is made? Microchips are built from wafers that consist of 99.9999% pure silicon. The silicon is made from common beach sand. The chips are made in …incredibly clean environments - the air is more than 1000 times purer than that of a hospital. The silicon wafers are produced by a specialist company and sent to the chip manufacturer for processing. The Silicon wafer consists of 4 layers. A mask that is created during the design phase defines the cicuit pattern. A mask is placed over the wafer, under a UV light. Patterns are repeatedly projected on the wafer, light can only reach the wafer through the openings. The UV light reacts with the photoresist to create the circuit patterns. Impurities are then implanted into areas of the wafer to alter the electrical properties of specific regions. This is called doping. Electrical contacts are formed by masking and etching the wafer to provide links between the different layers. Multiple layers of metal are applied to form the electrical connections between the chips's layers. The final chip is housed in a protective case that contains wires to connect it to the computer's circuit boards. .. More Info: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/7081578.stm

on their neck but you can not touch it
a microchip is a small semiconductor used to relay information through specific electrical characteristics
It led to the development of computing devices
Its a small square that does all the processing of the computer. Almost all have graphics built- in so you dont need a graphics card. The 2 major companies are Intel and AMD.
Because it was found that any component except an inductor could be made with a semiconductor, so if several were made on the same chip and connected into a complete functiona…l circuit the resulting device could be packaged in a case the same size as that for one transistor. This was done twice in the lab: TI did it with germanium, however this process required hand wiring the circuit under a microscope thus was very expensive.Fairchild did it with silicon and their newly invented "planar" process, which allowed everything including wiring to be integrated. Fairchild's process won and everybody has done it that way since then. To simplify things, the IC was invented because it could be and it improved miniaturization and reliability.
A Microchip is a semiconductor integrated circuit. The function depends on what it is designed to do. It could be a micro processor, memory chip, or digital tuner. It could be… used in your wristwatch, microwave oven, cell phone, garage door opener, the space shuttle, or almost anything. Scroll down to related links and look for "Integrated circuit - Wikipedia".
Almost anything. Question is far too broad to answer...it like asking "What do people do?"
