  Microelectronics -- Facts, Info, and Encyclopedia article   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Microelectronics is a subfield of (The branch of physics that deals with the emission and effects of electrons and with the use of electronic devices) electronics.
Microelectronics, as the name suggests, is related to the study and manufacture of electronic components which are very small.
These devices are made from (A substance as germanium or silicon whose electrical conductivity is intermediate between that of a metal and an insulator; its conductivity increases with temperature and in the presence of impurities) semiconductors using a process known as (A planographic printing process using plates made from a photographic image) photolithography.

 AllRefer.com - microelectronics (Electrical Engineering) - Encyclopedia
Although the term is sometimes used to describe discrete electronic components assembled in an extremely small and compact form, it is often taken as a synonym for integrated circuit technology.
Discrete components that can be made using microelectronic techniques include resistors, capacitors, and transistors; inductors are excluded for practical purposes.
Microelectronic tuned circuits can be built using piezoelectric electromechanical components.

 Microelectronics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
These devices are made from semiconductors using a process known as photolithography.
Many components of normal electronic design are available in microelectronic equivalent: transistors, capacitors, inductors, resistors, diodes and of course insulators and conductors can all be found in microelectronic devices.
Inductors are used in some high frequency analog circuits, but tend to occupy large chip area if used at low frequencies; gyrators can replace them.
