Chip carrier. Gloved fingers holding a ceramic carrier for housing a computer's integrated circuit chip. The silicon chip or integrated circuit (IC) will be mounted in the space in the centre of the carrier. Around this are a series of vertical pins. These are the termination pins which connect the chip to the rest of the computer. Thin wires (usually gold wires) connect the chip to the termination pins.
