Title: Circuit having dynamic threshold voltage

Abstract: A body-tied-to-drain transistor having significantly reduced gate delay and being particularly appropriate for large drivers where a series of inverters is used. The basic configuration ties the drain of the transistor to the body of the transistor when the transistor is turned on, and is disconnected when the transistor is turned off.
