What is the full form of CMOS:

CMOS represents Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor.

CMOS stands for Complementary metal oxide semiconductor. CMOS is a technology used to make Integrated circuits. It is used in many places like microprocessors, microcontrollers, RAM, image sensors, data converters, transceivers etc. CMOS is also known as COS-MOS as it has a pair of complementary and symmetrical p type and n type metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistors. The advantages of CMOS devices are: they work with very low power consumption and are very good at noise immunity. The series combination of transistors is on only at the time of on and off switching. Hence, one pair of transistor is mostly off and this reduces the power consumption. CMOS devices produce less waste heat as compared to other devices like NMOS logic or transistor-transistor logic. CMOS is widely used in VLSI chips because it gives a high density of logic functions to be mounted on one particular chip.
