BiCMOS technology (Bipolar CMOS) is a combination of the two most important semiconductor technologies, bipolar technology and CMOS technology
. Logics from both technologies, BiCMOS and CMOS technology, combine the advantages of these semiconductor technologies. CMOS technology is characterized by low power consumption and high input impedance
, whilebipolar circuits are characterized by high switching frequencies and short switching times.
In BiCMOS circuits, the input circuits are implemented in CMOS and the output stages are bipolar, which gives this technology a high driving capability.
