Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Silicon complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistor was discussed. In digital applications such as computing and telecommunications, the CMOS inverter serves as the basic logic block with two states , 0 and 1, which correspond to the high and low states of the CMOS inverter, respectively. A significant feature of the CMOS is that it does not consume power when it is locked in a particular logic state, either 0 or 1. Future progress of the CMOS technology is encountering serious roadblocks.
