NMOS

[′en‚mȯs]
(electronics)
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.

Total harmonic distortion (THD)'s of the proposed NMOS and PMOS structures are measured as 1.
For the NMOS based phase shifter; minimum, maximum and standard deviation of the operating frequency were measured as 9.
Fujitsu Laboratories discovered that implanting aluminum after forming silicide(8) reduces contact resistance(9) between NMOS silicide and silicon.
Therefore, a process is added in which aluminum is selectively implanted into NMOS regions, thereby avoiding the problem of reducing PMOS on-current.
The integrated diode-connected NMOS transistor serves the function of a diode linearizer, which can effectively improve the linearity of the fabricated class AB output stage without increasing the chip size.
NMOS structure with the initial values of factors is presented in Fig.
Thus, the proposed algorithm based on which the optimum search steps in the design of the NMOS might be as follows:
