Microelectronics is a field in electronics that utilizes tiny, or micro, components to manufacture electronics. As demand for small and less-expensive devices grows, the field continues to expand. The main areas of focus generally are research, reliability, and manufacturing. Typically, microelectronics begins with an integrated microelectronics circuit which is a set of electrical components connected together. The most common components are transistors, resistors, capacitors, and diodes.
