Chips manufactured using CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor
) technology form the basis of many consumer electronic devices used in daily life such as personal computers, smart phones, high definition TV and game consoles.
The downscaling of complementary metal-oxide semiconductor
(CMOS) transistors is nearing the limit where there are simply too few electrons in a device's active region to prevent quantum fluctuation errors.
The system consists of three components: an infrared light unit that is trained on the driver's face; a CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor
) imager that takes pictures of the eyes to determine the percentage of closure; and an electronics module housing a digital signal processor that plugs into the serial bus behind the dashboard.
Matsushita Electric Industrial rose 37 yen to 1,629 yen on reports that it has developed a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor
(CMOS) transistor that can significantly reduce power consumption by system chips.
The MSM6050 is QUALCOMM's first wireless baseband chip produced using 300mm complementary metal-oxide semiconductor

Lincoln's Lab FPA differs from a conventional GM APD in that each pixel is mated to a digital, silicon, complementary metal-oxide semiconductor
timing circuit that measures the arrival time of the photons.
A research article in the journal Applied Physics Letters says that the new chip is similar in type to an existing technology known as complementary metal-oxide semiconductor
(CMOS) memory, a common commercial chips that provide the data storage for USB flash drives and other devices.
Until recently, developers had to rely on expensive CCD (charge-coupled device) imaging solutions to gain the clarity needed for eye-tracking, but research has now shifted entirely to the use of CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor
The Kumamoto center will use its new production line to turn out mainly CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor
) image sensors, it said.
Like its 1994 predecessor, the 1997 Roadmap is a 15-year forecast of technology required to create complementary metal-oxide semiconductor
(CMOS) integrated circuits.
Their topics include Monte Carlo simulations of radiation effects, radiation effects in flash memories, single-event mitigation techniques for analog and mixed-signal circuits, radiation effects on complementary metal-oxide semiconductor
