WHAT IS INTEGRATED CIRCUIT TOPOGRAPHY?


Topography is a three-dimensional arrangement of elements displayed in any way, at least one of which is active and interconnection in an integrated circuit, or such three-dimensional arrangement prepared for the production of particular integrated circuit.

An integrated circuit is a finished product or an intermediate product where particular electronic function is established, and where the elements, at least one of which is active, and interconnections are integrally formed in a piece of material or on a piece of material, i.e. both in and on a piece of material.

Protection applies only to topography which is a result of the intellectual effort of a creator and which was not generally known among topography creators and integrated circuit manufacturers at the time it was created.
