Metal-oxide semiconductors that are made on p-type substrates, and whose active carriers are electrons that migrate between n-type source and drain contacts. Derived from n-channel metal-oxide semiconductor.

NMOS

(Negative-channel MOS) Pronounced "n-moss." A type of transistor used for logic and memory chips. NMOS transistors are faster than their PMOS counterpart, and more of them can be put on a single chip. NMOS is also used in CMOS design. For more details, see MOSFET.
