CMOS Full Form

What is the full form of CMOS?

The full form of CMOS is the Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor. CMOS is an integrated circuit built on a printed circuit board, a widely used kind of semiconductor used in transistors. It is a battery-powered memory chip that effortlessly holds the initialization data and the BIOS uses this data to turn on the device, that is during the bootup process.

  • The complimentary word refers to the user charge, that is either PMOS (positive MOS)or NMOS (negative MOS).CMOS utilizes one charge at a time.
  • CMOS consumes less power since charges can remain for a prolonged period of time in one phase and therefore consume energy whenever necessary.
  • Transistors focused on CMOS do not heat up and yield a high speed.
  • Lithium material which can last up to 10 years is composed of CMOS batteries.
