Integrated Circuits

 

Article 35 of the TRIPS Agreement requires Member countries to protect the layout-designs of integrated circuits in accordance with the provisions of the IPIC Treaty (the Treaty on Intellectual Property in Respect of Integrated Circuits), negotiated under the auspices of WIPO in 1989.

According to current legislation, an integrated circuit defined: an intermediate or final form of a product, which has an electronic function and has at least one active component and some or all of its interconnects assembled into one piece of material.   

Integrated circuit topography, on the other hand, is defined as an array of images that are prepared for production and fixed in any format, showing a three-dimensional array forming an integrated circuit.
