CMOS Details - CMOS ICs

The abbreviation CMOS stands for Complementary Symmetry Metal Oxide Semiconductor (complementary symmetrical metal-oxide-semiconductor).
For these blocks themselves off MOS FET can be used substrates

The power consumption of the CMOS IC is extremely low (up to 10 nW) and mainly depends on the operating frequency. (max. 50 MHz).
Due to the wide range of operating voltage of +3 V to +15 V, and the high integration density to have a large area of ​​application.

CMOS ICs series consist in general of a symmetrical arrangement of a complementary p-channel and an N-channel MOS transistor, the drain terminals of the two transistors are connected together.
