Abstract

In dynamic MOS (metal oxide semiconductor) logic and memory products the efficiency of charging and discharging phase line capacitances can be improved by transferring charge supplied to one phase line onto a temporary storage capacitor as the first step in the process of discharging that phase line and thereafter transferring the charge from the temporary storage capacitor onto the next phase line to be charged as the first part of its charging process.
