CMOS logic
A logic circuit consisting of N-type (negative-type) and P-type (positive-type) metal-oxide semiconductor (MOS) transistors with complementary interconnects. Complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) logic chips are currently the mainstream for integrated circuits, attributable to their low power consumption.
Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access. A standard for wireless communications that is anticipated to become widespread in the future for wireless devices.
Long Term Evolution. A new mobile phone communications standard, for which services are expected to start from around 2010.
Resistance between the source and drain when a transistor is on. The lower the on-resistance, the higher the efficiency and the better the high-output characteristics.
 I/O transistor
Transistor in the I/O circuit, embedded in an integrated circuit (IC), that handles the exchange of signals with external components. In many cases, the I/O circuitry operates at a higher voltage than the IC's internal parts, with 3.3 V I/O transistors being one of the most common.
