HMOS, high-performance n-channel MOS, uses n-type metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistors (MOSFETs) to implement logic gates and other digital circuits. It is based on NMOS technology, but compromises higher speed for greater power consumption. This makes it less efficient than NMOS and CMOS. The field-effect transistor (FET) is a transistor that relies on an electric field to control the shape and hence the conductivity of a channel in a semiconductor material. ... A logic gate is an arrangement of controlled switches used to calculate operations using Boolean algebra in digital circuits. ... Digital circuits are electric circuits based on a number of discrete voltage levels. ... NMOS logic uses n-type metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistors (MOSFETs) to implement logic gates and other digital circuits. ... Static CMOS Inverter CMOS (pronounced see-moss), which stands for complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor, is a major class of integrated circuits. ...
Houses that are in multiple occupation (HMOs) are defined as houses that are not occupied by a single household.
HMOs are not occupied in the same manner as a house occupied by a single family and there is often a need for the provision of additional bathroom and kitchen facilities.
In addition, HMOs have proved to be at greater risk from damage by fire and for this reason additional fire precautions such as fire doors and smoke alarms are normally fitted tp protect people living there.
On the positive side, HMOs can be very convenient, since you can go a long time without filling out a claim form; and you will probably pay a lot less for your health care than you would under a traditional fee-for-service plan.
HMO guidelines do not usually allow for approval of payment for procedures that are not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
One problem encountered by HMO patients is that primary care doctors, who may be under pressure to keep referrals low, perform procedures that would be better done by specialists.
