CMOS stands for Complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor and is a technology for constructing integrated circuits. It is used in microprocessors, microcontrollers, static RAM, and other digital logic circuits.

Advanced processes for depletion-load nMOS, such as Intel's family of scaled HMOS (High density, short channel MOS) is used for most microprocessors.

NMOS stands for N-type metal-oxide-semiconductor logic that uses n-type metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistors to implement logic gates and other digital circuits.

PMOS stands for P-type metal-oxide-semiconductor logic that uses p-type metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistors to implement logic gates and other digital circuits.
