Jiahao Li: Silicon Miracle

CMOS integrated chips sitting on a 12-inch wafer where the chips were fabricated before the packaging. The microchip here ,which was designed for the electrochemical biosensor readout, is so small but it contains thousands of transistors. The number of transistors in the state-of-the-art CPUs is up to several billion. The rapid development of IC technology has revolutionised the electronics industry for the past few decades, which is acclaimed as ’silicon miracle’.
