IC macro(Integrated Circuit macro) The first complete function built into a chip. Starting in the early 1960s, IC macros provided a circuit as simple as an AND gate, a register or a flip-flop. By the 1970s, IC macros became more complex. Later, IC macros became the "glue logic" that tied together microprocessors and other subsystem chips. See glue logic and PLD.
