- Cascode Voltage Switch Logic
"Cascode Voltage Switch Logic" refers to a CMOS-type logic family which is designed for certain advantages. It requires mainly
nMOStransistors to implement the logic using true and complementary input signals, and also needs 2 pMOStransistors at the top to pull one of the outputs high.
This logic family is also known as Differential Cascode Voltage Switch Logic (DCVS or DCVSL).
