i. The angle between the local horizon and the lines of force of the terrestrial magnetic field. Its value is maximum near the poles. Also called a magnetic dip, magnetic latitude, or magnetic inclination.
ii. The angle between a magnetic compass-needle perfectly poised, or on the horizontal axis, and the local horizontal plane. Also called a magnetic inclination or dip angle.
iii. The vertical angle between the true horizon and the apparent or visible horizon. Dip is a function of the height of the eye (i.e., the vertical distance of the observer's eye from the earth's surface).
iv. To dip or to lower one's wing, generally as a sign of recognition or acknowledgment.

(3) (Dual In-line Package) A common, mostly-rectangular chip housing with leads (pins) on both sides. Tiny wires bond the chip to metal leads that wind their way down into spider-like feet. The DIP is plugged into a socket or inserted into holes in the printed circuit board and soldered. See DIP switch, CDIP, CERDIP and chip package.


The DIP
Introduced in the 1960s, the DIP package was widely used for decades and still exists to hold microcontrollers and other electronic circuits.
