[′gāt ə‚rā di‚vīs]
(electronics)
An integrated logic circuit that is manufactured by first fabricating a two-dimensional array of logic cells, each of which is equivalent to one or a few logic gates, and then adding final layers of metallization that determine the exact function of each cell and interconnect the cells to form a specific network when the customer orders the device.
