I found these two diagrams Now my doubt is that in the first NMOS diagram the p-substrate is directly taken as base but in the second CMOS diagram p+ is taken as base what might be the reason for that? Posted in: #Coffee Room

If you have seen any package of MOSFET you will note that there are 4 lets from them and even your academics will tell there is a pin called substrate.

In the second image we have P layer as a substrate and the P+ serves as the Body of the MOS and the p layer has insufficient dopant concentration to provide charge carriers to enable conduction in the Transistor

Where as in the case of a individual NMOS there is no need for two P layers as you know that the amount of carriers got is more than enough to turn the device on

Feel free to ask any question related to this.
