MOS capacitor

A capacitor using metal-oxidesemiconductor (MOS) technology. It is used in MOS integrated circuits. A silicon substrate forms one electrode (generally p-type material). An oxide layer forms the dielectric. An electrode forms the other plate of the capacitor. The capacitance might be variable by changing the applied voltage at the metal gate electrode.
