Title: Composite transistor having a slew-rate control

Abstract: A metal oxide semiconductor transistor having a slew-rate control isdisclosed. The transistor having a slew-rate control includes an elongateddiffusion area and an elongated gate overlying the diffusion area. Theelongated diffusion area has at least two diffusion regions, each having athreshold voltage that is different from each other. The elongated gatehas a gate contact at only one side of the elongated diffusion area.
