The performance of a differential cascode voltage switch (CVS) logic circuit is improved by providing N channel devices 10 and 12 between P channel load devices 14 and 16 and a combinatorial network made of N channel transistors (NMOS). With this serial arrangement stray capacitances in the combinatorial network are not charged to the full supply voltage VH.
