How are Discrete Semiconductors different from Other Semiconductors?

discrete semiconductor 1Discrete semiconductors are different from other semiconductors in the fact that they are sold as single components. Many other semiconductor products are sold differently.

Many semiconductor products are sold as premade integrated circuits. For example, a microcontroller may have many different semiconductor components that make it up, but the entire unit is sold as a single device. A discrete semiconductor is simply one device rather than an integrated circuit that is manufactured out of various discrete semiconductors.
