ComplementaryMetal-Oxide Semiconductor. A MOS (metal oxide semiconductor) technology in which both P-channel and N-channel components are fabricated on the same die to provide integrated circuits that use less power than those made with other MOS or bipolar processes. CMOS is the IC logic family most-often used in BEAMbots.
