What is a MOS?[edit | edit source]

A MOS is a four terminal device having source,drain, gate and body. Climbing up another level of abstraction MOS can be seen as a 'voltage controlled current source'. Voltage applied in gate controls the current flowing through source and drain.

MOS short for MOSFET stands for metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor
