HOW CMOS WORKS: MOSFETS, JFETS, IGFETS AND MORE

CMOS opened the door for many if not most of the properties needed for today’s highly integrated circuits and low power portable and mobile devices. This really couldn’t happen until the speeds and current drive capabilities of CMOS caught up to the other technologies, but catch up they did. Nowadays CMOS Small Scale Integration (SSI)…

GATES TO FPGAS: TTL ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES

On the path to exploring complex logic, let’s discuss the electrical properties that digital logic signals are comprised of. While there are many types of digital signals, here we are talking about the more common voltage based single-ended signals and not the dual-conductor based differential signals. Single-ended Logic SignalI think of most logic as being in one…
