At a meeting in October 1968 the Westinghouse Molecular Electronics division announced a new type of field-effect transistor, the CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor). Its much lower power usage makes portable devices more viable, and allows for efficient cruicial battery powered memory storage.
