CMOS Bilateral Switch


CMOS bilateral switch

A bilateral switch might be best envisioned as a solid-state (semiconductor) version of an ele tromechanical relay: a signal-actuated switch contact that may be used to conduct virtually any type of electric signal.

Of course, being solid-state, the bilateral switch has none of the undesir able characteristics of electromechanical relays, such as contact "bouncing," arcing, slow speed, or susceptibility to mechanical vibration. Conversely, though, they are rather limited in their current carrying ability. Additionally, the signal conducted by the "contact" must not exceed the power supply "rail" voltages powering the bilateral switch circuit.

Four bilateral switches are packaged inside the popular model "4066" integrated circuit:
