CMOS Processing

What is CMOS processing? A fabrication process used for chips, analog circuits, and transceivers.

Complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) processing is a fabrication process used to make integrated circuit (IC) chips like microprocessors, microcontrollers, memory chips, and other digital logic circuits; analog circuits such as image sensors and RF circuits; and highly integrated transceivers for communications. In CMOS, two different types of transistors (N-type and P-type) work together to form efficient logic gates. CMOS devices provide high noise immunity and low static power consumption.
