large scale integration (LSI)

The development of the integrated circuit (IC) was largely determined by the density of transistors on a chip

.

The integration density of chips

The integration density of chips

As density has increased by many powers of ten over the course of development, the term Large Scale Integration (LSI) has been introduced for the number of components on a chip. LSI devices have an integration density of

one thousand (10exp3) to ten thousand (10exp4) transistors per chip and were developed in the mid-1960s. Thestructure width for LSI technology was 10 µm to 50 µm, and analog-to-digital circuits, memory devices, and microprocessors

were designed in this technology. The successor technology to Large Scale Integration is Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI).
