DIP is an acronym that stands for dual inline package and refers to the physical layout of most computer chips. The standard chip looks like a bug, or a little rectangular box with legs. Those two rows of metal legs are the "pins" that connect the chip to the computer's circuits. The whole chip is referred to as a "package," and it's a dual inline package because the pins are lined up in two rows.
