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 transistor used in the first microprocessors and still used in CMOS chips. PMOS is also used in low-cost products (calculators, watches, etc.). For more details, see MOSFET.

A closer look, however, reveals key differences between CRPs and PMOs. These differences are important and necessary, given the particular distinctions between the populations they serve.
22 to 64 one or two PMOS transistors are inserted as compensation in diode connection to complement the achievement of the expected voltage input range to the lower side.
Ninety percent of respondents agreed that the group improved organizational performance and helped individual and group development; 88 percent agreed that it enhanced the recognition and development of the role of PMOs. Studies of traditional CoPs show that these are strong motivators in CoP participation (McDermott and Archibald 2010).
The length of the MOS transistor is set to the minimum allowed by the technology, which refers to the ratio of the width of PMOS to the width of NMOS, i.e.,
The difference in our design is the PMOS and NMOS pairs are biased by the tapped node VBIAS from the center-tapped spiral.

His gates used both nMOS and pMOS transistors, earning the name Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor, or CMOS.
sustainment and developmental training, and local training at installation PMOs. If properly packaged, all military police Soldiers could be accredited through these existing programs, raising our policing profile and level of recognition as professionals in joint, interagency, and multinational circles.
You may reply: "Ask my project management office (PMO)." However, PMOs rarely can articulate the value and business outcomes of training.
* Can optionally drive an external PMOS to disconnect input supply from the System in the event of a fault.
