1. Fat too complicated to explain here - essentially a lot of transistors connected together on a single substrait.
2. How it works depends on the integrated circuit just as wilth any electronic circuit.

3. Structure is generally different for each type opften secret and patented. Some details are available on line for example the 555 structure is on the data sheet.

4. Some you can programme some you can't.

5. What language again depends on what complier you use to turn the language into machine code the IC can understand.

Stock photo screen-captured from a larger image? Following himself? Didn't pay enough attention in lecture to even know how to repost his own homework question? You'll not be getting that wager from me; it's a sure thing!

An intergreated chip uses manny logcial gates to ararnge

A microprocessor can be prorgamed too in any language.
