Application-Specific Integrated Circuit

An application-specific integrated circuit, or asic /ˈeɪsɪk/, is an integrated circuit (ic) customized for a particular use, rather than intended for general-purpose use. for example, a chip designed to run in a digital voice recorder is an asic. application-specific standard products (assps) are intermediate between asics and industry standard integrated circuits like the 7400 or the 4000 series.
