Definition: CMOS transistor


The most widely used integrated circuit (IC) technology. Although the term CMOS "transistor" is widely used, it is somewhat of a misnomer. There is technically no such thing as a single CMOS "transistor." CMOS "gates," CMOS "logic" or CMOS "circuits" are more accurate terms, because CMOS technology is made up of NMOS and PMOS transistors wired in combination to reduce power consumption. See CMOS and MOSFET.
