PMOS

[′pē‚mȯs]
(electronics)
Metal-oxide semiconductors that are made on n-type substrates, and whose active carriers are holes that migrate between p-type source and drain contacts. Derived from p-channel metal-oxide semiconductor.

PMOS

(Positive channel MOS) Pronounced "p-moss." A type of microelectronic circuit in which the base material is positively charged. PMOS transistors were used in the first microprocessors and are still used in CMOS. They are also used in low-cost products (calculators, watches, etc.). See MOSFET.
