ECE 190 Lecture 03 August 30, 2011 2 V. Kindratenko MOS devices Today’s computers are made of MOS transistors o MOS FETs – metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors o For the purpose of this course, we will treat MOS FETs as simple switching devices, or electrically controlled switches o Switch-based circuits can easily represent two states: on/off, open/close, voltage/no voltage Two types of MOS FETs o n -type Terminal 3 is called gate Terminal #2 must be connected to the ground o p -type terminal #1 must be connected to a positive supply voltage source (Vdd) Concept of Voltage o GND – reference voltage, 0 V We will refer to 0 V as a digital value of 0 o Vdd – positive supply voltage of a FET, ~1 V We will refer to Vdd V as a digital value of 1 MOS FETs as electrically controlled switches o n -type Attached to GND when Gate has positive voltage, short circuit between #1 and #2 (switch closed) when Gate has zero voltage, open circuit between #1 and #2 (switch open) Pulls output voltage DOWN when input is one
